Children’s Literature Event

Author Caitlyn Vernon
Monday Feb. 25th, 7:30 pm
at the Victoria Children’s Literature Roundtable
Debut author Caitlyn Vernon, winner of the 2012 Bolen Books Children’s Book Prize, will tell us about her uplifting ecology book, Nowhere Else on Earth: Standing Tall for the Great Bear Rainforest, and how she got started as a writer.

Caitlyn Vernon grew up on British Columbia’s Pacific Coast and now calls Victoria home. She will never be too big to wade in the ocean in her gumboots, poke around in tide pools, explore coastal forests or climb trees and mountains. Caitlyn has a background in biology and environmental studies and is currently a campaigner with Sierra Club BC, working to protect the Great Bear Rainforest. Nowhere Else on Earth is her first book.

The VCLR is open to the public. Members free, drop-ins $5, students $4. Meetings are held at the Nellie McClung Branch Library, 3950 Cedar Hill Road. Come early and browse CanLit for Kids Books’ table, and bring a friend! Doors open at 7 pm.
