Aspiring Writers and Illustrators Shine at Book Camp London 2012


Book Camp London is an annual 1-week day camp for young people who are passionate about reading, writing and illustrating. Co-sponsored by Investing in Children and the London Public Library, 40 campers ages 10-17, spent the week of August 13-17, 2012 at the Central Library exploring resources, writing and illustrating their own works, and learning from authors, illustrators, publishers and other book lovers. They enjoyed workshops with authors Arlaina Tibenskyh, Evan Mundy, Leah Bobet, Judie Oron and Marina Cohen, actors/playwrights Cliff Cardinal and Elizabeth Kantor, artist Ryan Mahy, publisher Pauline Cormier and librarians Linda Ludke, Michaela Bouzkova, Barb Adams and Anya Hleba.  When not in workshops they were creating their own works. The results are amazing! By the end of the week, they had produced this collection of short stories, poetry and illustrations. Read and enjoy and we hope to welcome more passionate and talented young people next year!
