White Pine Toronto Trip!
The White Pine Club Readers went to Toronto to see the musical Billy Elliot and to attend the Forest of Reading Celebration at Harbourfront Centre. Congratulations to Keelia Lafreniere, whose 100 word introduction for author Natale Ghent, before an audience of 850 avid teenage readers, was spectacular! Kayla Duguay and Rachel Gomes held signs for the authors. Courtney Summers, author of Some Girls Are and Don Calame, author of Swim the Fly, were Honour Book Award winners. Richard Scarsbrook, author of The Monkeyface Chronicles, won the White Pine Award for the most popular book out of 10 others in the province wide vote by teenagers.
