Celebrating Canada – A Top Ten List

Today is the day we raise our glasses, set off fireworks and eat way too much barbequed food in honour of Canada’s independence. It is also a day to spend some time with family and friends both old and new (and by friends I mean books of course!). To celebrate this great nation we call home, I have put together a list of my favourite Canadian authors. So grab your Tim Horton’s, curl up under a maple tree with the nearest polar bear or Mountie, and spend some time with these great Canadians:

1. Lucy Maud Montgomery (Clifton, PEI)

2. Robert Munsch (Guelph, ON)

3. Kenneth Oppel (Toronto, ON)

4. Phoebe Gilman (Toronto, ON)

5. Sarah Tsiang (Kingston, ON)

6. Kit Pearson (Victoria, BC)

7. Marie-Louise Gay (Montreal, QC)

8. Vikki VanSickle (Toronto, ON)

9. Jeremy Tankard (Toronto, ON)

10. Melanie Watt (Montreal, QC)

Happy Canada Day!
