Who Are Our Families with Naseem Hrab, David A. Robertson, Jillian Tamaki & Rebecca Thomas
Originally aired on October 25
Re-release November 30
Join award-nominated children’s book authors Naseem Hrab, David A. Robertson, Jillian Tamaki and Rebecca Thomas for a lively discussion, moderated by Shoshana Magnet, on the essential role our families play in the stories we tell. For many, this past year has caused feelings of detachment and isolation. Some have felt confined by lockdowns with immediate family members, while in contrast, others have been separated or been unable to visit their families. With this in mind, it is fitting that this year, many of the award-nominated titles for the CCBC Book Awards explore this theme of family relations, biological or otherwise. Hear from these talented authors about how families can help define who we are and, therefore, the stories we tell.
This event is presented in partnership with the Canadian Children’s Book Centre, a national, not‐for‐profit organization dedicated to encouraging, promoting and supporting the reading, writing and illustrating of Canadian books for young readers. For more information, visit bookcentre.ca.
