Letter from the Editor

This fall has been a very exciting one for IBBY Canada, notably for the Silent Books Exhibit that has been touring across the country since August, from Edmonton to Vancouver to Toronto. This timely exhibit comes to us from Lampedusa, Italy, where a collection of silent, or wordless, picture books has become a meaningful way to connect with the many migrant children who pass through the island. The exhibit is a powerful reminder of the universal language of storytelling and of IBBY’s mission to bridge cultures through books. You can read more about the exhibit’s Canadian tour in this issue of the newsletter.

As well, we’ve got news from John Martz’s residency at Toronto Public Library, as part of the Joanne Fitzgerald Illustrator in Residence Program; a research recap from Bonnie Tulloch, last year’s recipient of the Frances E. Russell Grant; and nominations for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award and the IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Award, among other news. Dive in!

Happy reading,

– Katie Scott, Newsletter Editor
