The Audacity of Canadian children’s literature

In Youth



In Canada, a large majority of creators of children’s literature are more than ever presenting innovative and lucid works, which sometimes even dare to break the most persistent taboos. They pride themselves on working with the desire to entertain and to educate, while also never underestimating the intelligence of young people. Who are they? With authors: Ashley Spires, Nancy Vo, India Desjardins. Moderation: Nicholas Aumais.

Subtitles in English, French and German are available.


This project is part of the Canadian Guest of Honour literary program at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2021 and was produced in partnership with CFBM2021, CBC/Radio-Canada and the Government of Canada.
