No Roundtable Meeting In March

The Victoria Childrens' Literature Roundtable will be joining the children of Victoria in their extended Spring Break this year, but we will return on April 26th, 2010 with another stellar presenter: Jeremy Tankard.

Jeremy Tankard is the author and illustrator of several books, including the best-selling, and the critically acclaimed, Grumpy Bird (Scholastic Press, 2007). Grumpy Bird has been nominated for many awards including the Blue Spruce Award 2008, The Shining Willow Award 2008, and the Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children’s Book Award 2008—a truly outstanding achievement for a first book. His most recent book, Boo Hoo Bird (Scholastic Press, 2009), received a starred review in Quill and Quire in January 2009.

Jeremy’s illustrations have appeared in many major magazines and newspapers including Time, Fortune, the New York Times, the Globe and Mail and the Boston Globe. He has been recognized by American Illustration magazine, the Society of Illustrators in New York City, and the American Association of Educational Publishers. His work has been exhibited in New York, Toronto and Calgary.
