Anthony De Sa, Barbara Reid and Eric Walters team up to answer questions from educators and librarians.

Anthony De Sa is a teacher-librarian and author who grew up in Toronto’s Portuguese community. De Sa’s critically acclaimed book, Barnacle Love, became a finalist for the 2008 Scotiabank Giller Prize and the 2009 Toronto Book Award. At WordFest, De Sa will present his new novel Kicking the Sky.

Barbara Reid is the critically acclaimed Canadian author and illustrator of over twenty books, including Picture a Tree; The Subway Mouse; Welcome, Baby; and The Night Before Christmas.  Her timeless storytelling paired with her vibrant Plasticine illustrations result in utterly original picture books that are loved by children and parents alike.

Eric Walters began writing in 1993 as a way to entice his grade five students into becoming more interested in reading and writing. At the end of the year, one student suggested that he try to have his story published. Since that first creation, Walters has published several novels which have all become bestsellers and have won over eighty awards.
