A Tribute to Children’s Books
September 30 at 10:30am
Storydrop tent, All Day
Through all ages and in all cultures, we have used stories both as entertainment and in search of knowledge, to strengthen our ties with others – both those who are like us and those who are unlike us – and not least in order to understand our own existence. Children’s books are often the first contact we have with literature and art, and they make a powerful impression. Doubtless you recall one or the other of the first books you read. Do you still remember having the feeling of time and space having ceased to exist? The Swedish Academy for Children’s Books seeks to enable children to have access to powerful and enriching reading experiences and has produced this exhibition as a tribute to children’s literature.
This is a free public event. The tent is located on the west lawn at Harbourfront Centre and is open to the general public. See it on the map here.
