‘Tis the season for giving, and the Literary Prizes Foundation has given a wonderful gift to IBBY Canada–a cheque for $5,000! The Literary Prizes Foundation finances the Burt Prize for African Literature, administered by IBBY Canada’s sister organization, the Canadian Organization for Development through Education (CODE). IBBY Canada has selected several Canadian authors who have helped CODE establish writing and publishing programs in various African countries. Some of the authors include Peter Carver, Hadley Dyer, Ted Staunton, and Kathy Stinton.
We’d like to thank the Literary Prizes Foundation for their generous support of IBBY Canada. Our shared goals and values will ensure this money goes toward projects that bring together children and quality books.
