On the Road

Gabrielle signs a book for a student at the University of Victoria

Gabrielle will be touring Ontario from May 6 to May 13, 2017.

Gabrielle will be in Chicago from June 22-27 at the ALA Annual Convention.  

Gabrielle is available to visit college or school classrooms throughout the lower mainland and Vancouver Island of British Columbia. Teachers in the region between the US border and Seattle/Tacoma can also inquire, particularly if they are able to arrange more than one classroom. Gabrielle occasionally visits other parts of the United States and Canada. Please check this page for updates on her availability.

The fees for classroom visits is $150 for classrooms within the Greater Vancouver Regional District and $200 elsewhere, as listed above. These fees are recommended by CANSCAIP and many school boards have funds allocated for this purpose. The fee is payable by check or cash.

Schools and groups facing financial hardship should contact Gabrielle to discuss a fee waiver.

  1. Hello Gabrielle, I’m a Teacher-Librarian with the York Catholic District School Board in southern Ontario (Toronto). Each year I organize a Literary event that brings together all of our high school book clubs reading the White Pine books. For the event we invite one of the authors from the nominated list of books. I was wondering if you just might be in Ontario on April 10. I know this is probably a long shot but nonetheless I thought I would try.
    Will you FACETIME or SKYPE with schools/classrooms?

  2. Hello Gabrielle!
    I’m a Teacher-Librarian at St. Joan of Arc Catholic High School in Southern Ontario.
    I was wondering if you will be in Toronto for school presentations and workshops anytime between January 2016 and May 26th?
    We would love to have you come out to our school!
