The Reading Partnership proudly presents the online book launch and program presentation for our tenth anthology, Magic in Me: The Book Universe. Featuring original stories and captivating art by young authors from Scarborough and the GTA, this collection is a testament to their remarkable talent and creativity.
Our immersive virtual writing program, 360° Stories, is at the heart of this literary journey. Designed for children aged 9-12, this free month-long program provides a platform for young minds to explore their imagination, develop their writing skills, and refine their stories. With the guidance and mentorship of community-based authors and illustrators, these budding writers are encouraged to find their unique voices and share their stories with the world.
The program reaches its exciting climax with the highly anticipated online book launch. Join us as we celebrate the achievements of these exceptional young authors alongside their families, friends, and community members. This event promises to be an unforgettable experience filled with joy, inspiration, and a deep appreciation for the power of storytelling.
During the online book launch, attendees will have the privilege of listening to live readings by the young authors themselves. Prepare to be captivated as they bring their stories to life, sharing their vivid worlds and imaginative characters. The event will also feature engaging author Q&A sessions, providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the creative process and the stories’ inspirations.
Furthermore, the online book launch offers an exclusive sneak peek into the anthology, showcasing the extraordinary depth and diversity of these young authors’ contributions.
