If you love BC Children’s Books…

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help support the annual Sheila A. Egoff Children’s Literature Book Prize. The Egoff Prize honors the author of a book for children or young adults. The category includes chapter books, fiction, non-fiction and biography.

This prize has always been vital in highlighting and rewarding great children’s books created by British Columbia’s children’s book creators. The prize supports all aspects of children’s literature by recognizing excellence in writing and by promoting sales, which in turn supports Canadian children’s book publishing and children’s booksellers. It was named for Sheila A. Egoff, O.C, Professor Emerita of UBC’s School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, in recognition of her work as the first critic of, and a passionate advocate for Canadian children’s literature.

To make your tax deductible donation, please write a cheque to The B.C. Book Prizes. On the memo line write: for the Sheila A. Egoff Prize. Mail your cheque to the B.C. Book Prizes, #901-207 W. Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC V6B 1H7, Canada.
