Our latest podcast episode is now available. Check out “Get Your Summer Read On, Part 1.

The TD Summer Reading Club is Canada’s biggest bilingual summer reading program for kids. Developed by the Toronto Public Library, in partnership with Library and Archives Canada, this free program highlights Canadian authors, illustrators and stories. The goal of the program is to foster literacy by encouraging kids aged 12 and under to read during the summer months.

In part one of this two-part episode, we sit down to chat with Kevin Sylvester. Kevin is an award-winning writer and illustrator, and the 2018 TD Summer Reading Club English author. We also have a special co-host for this episode, Presley. He’s 9 years old, and a big Kevin Sylvester fan. Check out the dynamic conversation as our host, Presley and Kevin talk books at the Cumberland branch of the Ottawa Public Library.

Don’t miss the second episode to be released soon. You'll meet Camille Bouchard, author of the French story for the 2018 TD Summer Reading Club.
