Library and Archives Canada Launches the 2004-2005 Edition of Read Up On It, Poetry

Ottawa, October 7, 2004 - Today, at the Festival international de la poésie in Trois-Rivières, Library and Archives Canada launched the 2004-2005 edition of the Read Up On It guide to children's literature. Library and Archives Canada has chosen this year to highlight a selection of Canadian books devoted to poetry for young people. The cover of this edition of the guide features an image from the book Vieux Thomas et la petite fée, written by Dominique Demers and illustrated by Stéphane Poulin.

"Young people of all ages enjoy poetry," explained Ian E. Wilson, Librarian and Archivist of Canada. "By making Canadian poetry for young people the focus of the 2004-2005 edition of Read Up On It, Library and Archives Canada is paying tribute to the important contribution made by Canadian poets who write for children and teenagers."

Read Up On It is an annual bilingual guide to the best in Canadian literature for children and young adults. The books it lists are chosen from among the Canadian children's literature collection of Library and Archives Canada. More than 40,000 copies are distributed free of charge to schools, libraries and parents across Canada. The guide also contains activity suggestions, a poster and bookmarks related to the overall theme. Now in its 16th year, Read Up On It is designed to encourage young people to read and to discover the books of Canadian authors and illustrators.

This program is made possible by the support of numerous partners and sponsors, including the Canadian Library Association (CLA) and the Association des sciences et des techniques de la documentation (ASTED).
