Description

[Grades 6 - 8]

Courtice Branch, The Great Room
Tuesday, March 6
1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

Vikki VanSickle loves to mix funny anecdotes with interactive activities, and throw in a mythological creature or two. A bookseller and playwright, she’s the author of the acclaimed “Clarissa” books, and her novel “Summer Days and Starry Nights” was a Red Maple finalist. Her first picture book, “If I Had a Gryphon,” was shortlisted for the Blue Spruce Award.

Vikki’s motto is “Everything I need to know in life I learned from children’s literature,” and will happily talk your ear off about kids’ books. Growing up in Woodstock, Ontario, she spent her summers searching for treasures at flea markets and for her next great read at the library. When not writing, she can be found at Penguin Random House Canada as the marketing and publicity manager for the young readers’ program.

We acknowledge the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
