On the shelves of The Children’s Book Bank are many beloved classics. Why are some books for the ages? Both Life of Pi, a fable about a boy in a boat with a tiger, and Paris 1919, an account of a peace conference that changed history, seem destined to be read for generations. Do their creators agree? Which books would they place in that category?
This evening is the first of its kind in support of The Children’s Book Bank. Guests will be entertained by students from the Regent Park School of Music, followed by an intimate and engaging conversation with two great Canadian authors, Yann Martel and Margaret MacMillan and moderated by Charlie Foran.
