FOLD Kids Book Fest 2023
FOLD Kids Book Fest will host live virtual and in-person events from November 1-5, 2023.
Virtual events for classrooms and educators will take place November 1-3 in our virtual clubhouse; live, in-person events will be held in Brampton from November 3-4 at various Brampton Library locations and on Sunday, November 5 at Lester B. Pearson Theatre.
Virtual Events for Students and Educators
FOLD Kids Book Fest virtual events provide students and educators with direct access to a diverse array of incredible authors and storytellers who present story-time readings, writing workshops, educator events, and entertaining activities in our interactive virtual clubhouse.
This year’s events include workshops on writing and activism, ASL storytime, and our annual new-and-improvedIllustrator Battle — as well as a special series of pre-recorded bonus content.
In addition to our live and pre-recorded events, the virtual clubhouse includes an exhibit hall and a resource room full of helpful supplemental material for educators. The clubhouse also includes a leaderboard where passholders can earn a range of prizes and a scavenger hunt where students can seek out fun objects.
All virtual events, and select in-person events, will be available to watch on-demand until December 5, 2023 with a virtual pass ($20). School boards who purchase a board-wide pass have access to the virtual clubhouse and all of the resources for the entire 2023-2024 school year.
If you are interested in purchasing a board-wide pass, please have an authorized representative from your board submit the School Board Pass form as soon as possible.
