Young Alberta Book Society

We are thrilled to announce that Cenovus Energy is once again sponsoring two Wordpower tours in 2015! We are accepting applications from eligible authors, illustrators, and storytellers who are interested in being part of the Wordpower team. Wordpower South will be sending a team of 8 artists to communities roughly between Brooks and Medicine Hat during the week of April 20-24. Wordpower North will have a team of 8 artists traveling among communities north-eastern Alberta such as Lac La Biche, Cold Lake, and Bonnyville during the week of April 27 - May 1. Please see our Wordpower page for details on how to apply.


If you're looking into charitable donations, we hope you'll consider giving or requesting a donation to the Young Alberta Book Society. We are now members of the ATB Cares program which matches which contributes an additional 15% of every donation -- and they also cover all of the transaction costs! Donations can be made to YABS through ATB Cares here. You can also make a safe, secure, tax deductible donation through!
