Children's Literature to be Focus of Annual Friends of the Bata Library Fundraising Dinner


Leslie McGrath to Deliver Keynote Address at May 11 Event

Wednesday, April 12, 2006, Peterborough

The Friends of the Bata Library will be holding their annual spring fundraising dinner, which will feature guest speaker Leslie McGrath, on Thursday, May 11 at 6:30 p.m. in Scott House at Traill College.

Ms. McGrath, who will speak about "Glass Slippers and Seven League Boots: The Shoe Story in Children's Literature", is the Head of the Osborne Collection of Early Children's Books with the Toronto Public Library. Her interest in children's literature has led her to research and promote many wonderful books through exhibits including This Magical Book: Moveable Books for Children, 1771-2001 and It's Elementary: Children's Detective Stories from the Osborne Collection of Early Children's Books.

The annual fundraising dinner is organized by the Friends of the Bata Library, an association dedicated to cultivating interest in all aspects of the Bata Library at Trent University and its resources. Money raised through the event is used to help purchase rare and expensive print material, often of a local and regional nature, and in the acquisition of various electronic resources that help to make the material at the Bata Library more wide-ranging and useful to library users.

The May 11 event will begin with a cash bar at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:15 p.m. Tickets for the event are $45 per person for members of the Friends and $55 for non-members. An income tax receipt is included. Tickets should be purchased before May 1 by calling Janice Millard at 705.748.1011 x1413.
