I'm going to be visiting Toronto next month for the Festival of Trees, May 12&13. (KPC #1 was nominated for the Silver Birch Express!)

Anyone else going?? Attendees or nominees??

Arty, my cousin, Kira Vermond, is going to be there. She writes NF and is getting a red maple (?). If you see her, ask her to do her rabbit imitation. It's fabulous. (She may be surprised at the request, since I don't think she's done it since she was ten.)  :bunny2

Oh, I want to hear that!  :envy

I know it's off a bit yet, Arty, but have a wonderful time! This is such a terrific, and well-deserved, honor!  :goldstar

I don't know if they are on this board... Maybe they will chime in...  But Ria Voros (Nanaimo) is going, and so is Jenny Watson (Victoria). Ria is up for the White Pine, so I think you'll be on different days-  but you and Jenny will be in the same category, and she is lovely- say hi from me!

I went last year (Record Breaker was nominated and ended up winning the Silver Birch) and it was all SO MUCH FUN. Seriously, you will have a blast. The kids are awesome- so excited- and you'll be treated like a rock star. Are you going to any of the satellite festivals (London, Thunder Bay etc)?

oh! One more! Pretty sure Michelle Mulder, also from Victoria, is nominated for Silver Birch non-fiction. Lots of folks from our corner of the country!

I'm in Nanaimo! Darn, could have shared a plane, lol.

I'm not going to Thunder Bay or London, but the Durham Region invited me to their event and to do some school visits.

I will be going to the reception so maybe I will have a chance to meet them! There's so many published people on the island/surrounding islands. Outside of Toronto it has to be the biggest concentration of Canadian authors/illustrators.

And awesome about Record Breaker!

And thanks Laurel!!
