Young Alberta Book Society

Bookings for the 2014 edition of the Taleblazers Festival will be open on May 1! In the meantime, you can browse our artist database and start narrowing down the choices for your October 2014 artist visits. As always, the Young Alberta Book Society will cover the travel expenses of all Taleblazers Festival bookings. Check back after May 1 for the booking form!

Between May 1 and June 15, we will be accepting entries for the Allard Win-a-Literary Artist contest! This contest awards 10 discounts of $300 towards Taleblazers invoices. Please note that entries sent before May 1 will not be accepted. Early entrants will have to resubmit after May 1 to be eligible.


If you're looking into charitable donations, we hope you'll consider giving or requesting a donation to the Young Alberta Book Society. You can make a safe, secure, tax deductible donation through!
