|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.|
Darren Lee, City of Vancouver, donated Clifford the Big Red Dog written and illustrated by Norman Bridwell. Bridwell said when he was creating the original painting of Clifford he happened to have a jar of red paint on his desk and decided to “make him a little different.”
Darren shares the story of the compassionate Grade 1 school teacher that inspired his favorite book donation.
