A Good Book Drive: Elfred Matining


A Good Book Drive is an annual book drive to bring stories to a new generation of readers, and support kids in need of new books. Running through the month of November, A Good Book Drive will be inspiring Vancouverites to purchase a new copy of their favorite kids’ book and deliver it to set locations throughout the city to be donated to this year’s book drive recipient, Vancouver literacy program The Writers Exchange.

If you’re downtown you can drop off your book donation just inside the doors of ArtStarts. While you’re there personalize your book with a custom bookplate and be sure to check out one of the cutest kid’s art galleries in Vancouver.

When Elfred Matining, Program Assistant at ArtStarts, immigrated to Canada it was his grade three teacher and her book The BFG that brought a missing magic back into his life. He’s donating that very book to A Good Book Drive and tells us why…
