Letter from the Editor

Fall has brought a flurry of activity for IBBY Canada, and we’ve got many exciting initiatives to share with you in this issue of the newsletter. Tickets are now on sale for the Cleaver Art Raffle, which celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian Picture Book Award. The two winning prizes are illustrations from the picture books Once Upon a Northern Night (Groundwood Books, 2013) and Virginia Wolf (Kids Can Press, 2012), signed by Cleaver Award–winning artist Isabelle Arsenault.

IBBY Canada had several members in attendance at the IBBY Congress in Auckland, New Zealand, in late August. We’ve got reports from Theo Heras and Catherine Mitchell about their Congress experiences.

Back home in Canada, the Joanne Fitzgerald Illustrator in Residence Program is underway at Edmonton Public Library. We have a recap of the launch event with this year’s illustrator in residence, Dianna Bonder. We’ve also been at The Word on the Street in Halifax and Toronto to promote IBBY Canada's work. You can read all about it in the Regional Reports East and Ontario.

Happy reading!

– Katie Scott, Newsletter Editor
