Ampersand Pubs Dominated at Forest of Reading!

May 20, 2014 | by

Okay, okay… maybe “dominated” is too strong a word. But we’re super proud of our publishers!
The Ontario Library Association’s Forest of Reading festival this week at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre
saw more than 8,000 kids brave the rainy weather to cheer on their Forest picks, and not surprisingly,
a few of our kick-ass publishers came out on top!
