Early Voices, Own Voices, Changing Voices: Canadian Children's Literature from 1968 to 1990
Jeffrey Canton, storyteller, academic and Globe and Mail children's book reviewer, looks at publishing in the early years of the children's book renaissance that began with Canada ’s centennial celebrations. Independent Canadian publishers began to spring up, ones that were quite different from the tiny handful of independents that had existed prior to 1967. And they had a very different vision of Canada that they wanted to share with young readers. What were those visions? What voices found their way into print? What happened as the industry grew?

Join us for the 33rd Helen E. Stubbs Memorial Lecture on Thursday, Nov 11, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Kathy Stinson has loved reading since before she started school. She sorted mail, taught elementary school, and worked as a waitress before it occurred to her that she might like writing too. An argument with her then 3-year-old daughter soon led to the writing of her first book, Red Is Best, which quickly became a classic.
Kathy has since written a wide range of juvenile, young adult, and adult fiction, non-fiction titles, and more picture books, including The Man with the Violin, winner of the prestigious TD Children's Literature Award.
