PREVIEW Canadian Children’s Book Weeks: Conversation with youth book author Kenneth Oppel

In the fall of 2021, the International Children’s and Young People’s Book Weeks Cologne will take place, at which Canada will present its diverse literature and culture. Two of the invited Canadian authors have already been virtual guests to bridge the time to the festival: Experience the multi-award-winning author of YA books Kenneth Oppel in conversation with Tobias Goldfarb and visit the renowned illustrator and children’s book author Sydney Smith in his studio in Halifax.


The project is part of Canada’s literary programme related to Canada`s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2021 and is supported by the Government of Canada (Embassy of Canada to Germany).
