The community got together last weekend to share a love of reading.
The Vancouver Island Children’s Book Festival was held downtown on Saturday, with a dozen guest authors making presentations, signing books and interacting with young readers.
Faith Erin Hicks, Isabelle Arsenault, Cale Atkinson, Kathy Beliveau, Darlene Gait, Kim Soo Goodtrack, Scott Henderson, Qin Leng, Barbara Reid, David Alexander Robertson, Margriet Ruurs and Robin Stevenson were the featured authors/illustrators this year.
Events were held at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, Harbourfront Library, the Nanaimo Art Gallery and Diana Krall Plaza.
