The Vancouver Children’s Literature Roundtable invites you to a lively and informative morning presentation and workshop with acclaimed BC poets Tiffany Stone and Robert Heidbreder on the myriad ways to engage with children through poetry.
In addition, several CWILL BC writers will entertain you with short talks about their recent works—this is a great way to learn about new books for your classroom or library.
Expect to learn a lot, laugh a lot, and enjoy the company of other educators and lovers of books!
PoetryPlease! Tiffany Stone and Robert Heidbreder, two well-known BC children’s poets whose published works include Rainbow Shoes (Kirkus starred review), Floyd the Flamingo and His Flock of Friends, Black and Bittern Was Night (Publishers Weekly starred review) and Crocodiles Play, will take you on a poetic ride. You will listen to poetry, act it out, read it, write your own poems and discover some criteria for choosing and writing poetry with your class.
We will also have a repeat of last year’s extra fun activity—Speed Dating for Lovers . . . of books.
Friday November 22, 2013 at the University Golf Club 8:00 am – 12:00 pm. Includes a continental breakfast. Co-sponsored by CWILL.
