As part of the Culture Days programming, we are very happy to be teaming up with Small Print Toronto on Saturday Sep 29, 2012 for BLOCK LETTERS. Award-winning artist-author Cybele Young along with Chris Reed and Rani Sanderson of Small Print Toronto will be guiding urban explorers, ages 2-8, on a walk around our city block. They will then create their own books based on their observations. Cybele Young is the author of A Few Blocks and Ten Birds, the Latter won the 2011 Govenor General award for Children's Illustration.
After poking around on her website it is easy to see that she is a person of many talents. She even created the art installation at St. Clair Ave W and Deer Park Crescent above the street car stop. I know I've passed by it a hundred times and had no idea who the artist was.
It should be a fun program, so if you have nothing planned on the Saturday afternoon and want to do something with the little one, it's worth checking out. All materials will be supplied. Parents and other family members are welcome to accompany their children as we walk around the historic Lillian H. Smith branch and see what fantastical stories spring to mind!
Please call the branch at 416-393-7746 for more information and to register. Space is limited.
