The Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Awards ceremony will be held at the Charlottetown Library Learning Centre (Dominion Building, 97 Queen St.) on Friday, June 2, 2023. This venue is fully accessible, with barrier-free entrances and washroom facilities. In the morning from 10:00am to 11:30am, we will offer two English Hackmatack author presentations. (Equivalent French presentations will take place off-site.) After a 30-minute break for lunch at 11:30 am, the awards ceremony will begin at noon. The ceremony will take place in the same venue as the morning program, with book sales and signings available after the ceremony. We are excited to be bringing EIGHT nominated authors to Charlottetown for this event! This engaging day of literary programming is FREE for registered Hackmatack clubs.
