“Imagine the Future” Panel Moderator Scores Kid-Lit Hat Trick

Kevin Sylvester, children's author/illustrator and radio broadcaster, has just been nominated for not one, not two, but THREE books in the Ontario Library Association’s Forest of Reading® Program. 
His fiction book Neil Flambé and the Aztec Abduction, his sports book GameDay: Meet the People Who Make It Happen and Don’t Touch That Toad &Other Strange Things Adults Tell You, a book he illustrated, are all nominees for The Silver Birch® Award (Grades 3 - 6).
Sylvester says "It is honestly an amazing honour to be included with all these amazing writers. Canadians are so lucky to have such a great kid-oriented literary culture and we authors are so lucky to have such amazing librarians and educators... and readers too!"
The Ontario Library Association’s Forest of Reading® initiative offers seven reading programs to encourage a love of reading for people of all ages.  It is intended for a wide range of reading levels and interests.  The Forest program celebrates Canadian books, publishers, authors and illustrators and is the largest recreational reading program in the country.
Mr. Sylvester is the moderator for Stratford Public Library’s “Imagine the Future” panel on Wednesday October 19 at Stratford City Hall Auditorium at 7:00 pm.
