MEETING DATE & TIME: Wed. Mar. 11 at 7:00 p.m.
TOPIC: Find out how fast, fierce and fun Kids’ Lit Quiz can be. Join us to participate in a game—or cheer on your favourite creators.
Kids’ Lit Quiz Canada is about making connections between kids and books. National Coordinator Nancy Davidson’s mission is to promote reading, and her goal is to have a team of Canadian authors at every Quiz event.
In a real Kids’ Lit Quiz (held worldwide including Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, UK and China), teams of adult creators compete against teams of kids ages 10 to 13 in answering questions about children's literature—and the kids usually win.
On March 11, CANSCAIP creators will be competing against each other, without any know-it-all kids, so the odds of a creator winning are 100%!
CANSCAIPers, put your knowledge and your nerve to the test with Kids’ Lit Quiz!
