Literacy Week in Full Swing

Although it’s billed as being Family Literacy Day, there are reading events happening all week across the country for kids of all ages.

As I posted earlier, I am lucky enough to be visiting Smithfield Middle School tomorrow and Friday to talk to the students about writing comics. There are a bunch of other great events too and you can find them listed here. If you’re looking for a fun day out with the family that will get them reading then check out your local library and find out what they’re doing this week.

Alternatively, you can drop by the Lee house in Calgary, who recently won the FLD’s national contest to have Robert Munsch drop by their house to hang out (and read a few stories one would think.)

Let me tell you, if ever the day comes where I’m prize in a nationwide contest, then my goal as a writer will be accomplished. Seriously though, congratulations to the Lee family. I’m sure they’ll have a great time with Robert – just don’t let him eat all the cookies.
