White Pine

The Forest of Reading and Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s Official White Pine Book Club.

An intrepid group of 9 students made the trek to Harbourfront on May 15th in the rain, to attend the Forest of Reading’s annual Festival of Trees White Pine Award Ceremony. Three of the group represented Laurier admirably by holding signs for two of the authors and presenting one author; significantly, the winning author, Danielle Younge- Ullman for Everything Beautiful Is Not Ruined. Ten books were nominated and a student vote decided the winner. Authors were met, autographs were signed, books were won and students had the opportunity to attend author workshops-all-in-all, a great day celebrating reading!

If you are interested in joining the White Pine book club in 2018/2019, please contact Ms. Vilicic in the Library.
