Not every kid loves to read, but every kid loves to laugh. That’s the big idea behind Funny Pages, Canada’s only festival devoted to books that crack kids up. Through Funny Pages, we want to see low literacy rates laughed right out of existence.

On Friday, April 22nd, Funny Pages will be putting the “Ha!” into the Halifax Central Library. Hundreds of kids from Grades 4 to 8 will enjoy a day of author presentations, comedy workshops, and book signings. Meanwhile, thousands of students throughout the country will share in the fun online.

On Saturday, April 23rd, preschool, and elementary kids can join in on the fun with an event featuring Sheree Fitch and Kate Beaton at the Halifax Central Library.
