Host an Author

Last year, 15 of the nominated Hackmatack authors toured the Atlantic provinces, meeting thousands of young Hackmatack fans. These Hackmatack author tours were made possible with generous assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Nova Scotia Department of Education, and the New Brunswick Public Library Service, as well as with the partnership of a number of regional libraries.

This year, Hackmatack authors from across Canada will be visiting schools and libraries in the Atlantic region during the week of May 1 to 4, 2017.

If your Hackmatack group is interested in attending a reading or hosting an author, please send an email to by February 2017 to get details and determine author availability.
