Prince George!

on April 23, 2019

3 days,

7 schools,

1 epic Battle of the Books

….a quick recap of the time I spent in Prince George last week!

Now, the longer version:

The Battle of the Books was an amazing event. My compliments to the hard-working committee of teacher-librarians that organized it. What a great way to both encourage and honour reading! You can find out more about the battle in this front page article from the Prince George Citizen. The Prince George school district has been doing an event with the Red Cedar Nominated books for the past 20 years. Other school districts should check it out!

Between school visits, I had a chance to explore Prince George and connect with friends. I’ve never been this far north in BC and I hope to come back. The people are so friendly and welcoming and the city certainly has a lot of great amenities and outdoor activities to explore!

Thank-you to everyone who made my visit possible and for all the students for being such enthusiastic participants!
