TIFA Kids! Reading: The Barnabus Project with The Fan Brothers (Illustrated Category)
May 28 at 4pm
Celebrate and explore some of today’s best Canadian children’s authors and illustrators!
Tune in with the whole family for a fun reading from the stunning picture book The Barnabus Project. In a world built for Perfect Pets, Barnabus is a Failed Project, half mouse, half elephant, kept out of sight until his dreams of freedom lead him and his misfit friends on a perilous adventure. This suspenseful and magical story about following your dreams and finding where you truly belong will draw readers into a surreal, lushly detailed world in which perfection really means being true to yourself and to your friends.
International bestsellers The Fan Brothers will give a family-friendly reading from The Barnabus Project as part of TIFA’s exclusive event series spotlighting the finalists for the 2020 GGBooks Young People’s Literature categories. The GGBooks Literary Awards winners will be announced on June 1.
Recommended for ages 5–9.
This event is organized in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts to celebrate the Governor General’s Literary Awards.
