In Support of Young Alberta Book Society
For 30 years, YABS has been an advocate for children's literacy in Alberta. Its mission is "to foster literacy and a love of reading among young people in Alberta by providing access to the province's literary artists and their work." YABS has brought together a rich pool of talented Albertan authors, illustrators and storytellers who dedicate themselves to enriching the lives of children and youth through the literary arts. Low literacy is linked to poverty, crime, disadvantage, and exclusion. Literacy is the foundation for a lifetime of learning and communicating. We strive to give Alberta's children and youth the basis for the quality of life they deserve. We are committed to creating opportunities for Alberta's children to be inspired by Alberta's literary artists. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience the arts to discover their creativity and imagination and to develop strong literacy skills. No matter what their location or socioeconomic status, every Alberta child should experience the joy of reading and writing.
