The Page Turner Project
CBC's new "Page Turner Project" for grades 7,8,9
It's back! Last January (2013), CBC Radio One Cape Breton's Information Morning and CBU Press brought together fifty aspiring young writers for workshops with best-selling author Philip Roy.
Well, thanks to the good folks at Baddeck Academy the PAGE TURNER PROJECT will return.
This is a chance for Cape Bretoners in junior high (7,8,9) to attend a workshop on Thursday, October 24, in Baddeck.
PHILIP ROY is the author of the best-selling adventure series Submarine Outlaw. Last year, his historical fiction called Blood Brothers in Louisbourg (CBU Press, 2012) was met with rave reviews across the continent. Next month, CBU Press will launch a new novel by Philip Roy, Me & Mr. Bell, about a boy's relationship with the world-famous inventor. (Click here for a description of Me & Mr. Bell.)
