What's New at the Lyceum

Join Us for Spring!

What will we be up to during the spring term?

Well... we’ll be reading your new favourite book in our bookclubs, our early childhood education programs will be continuing to challenge their thinking with the best in children’s literature and inspiring art projects, and our writers’ workshops will be getting to work on zines for the Lyceum’s annual zine fair in June.  (Zines, my friends! Zines!)

We're currently accepting registrations for all programs and we hope you can join us!  Call 604.733.1356 today!

Introducing the Book Bugs

The Lyceum's New Family-Together Bookclub with a Focus on Reading The Classics

Reading the classics is a bit like learning a secret handshake. When we read what others have read before, we are able to build stronger relationships and deeper ways of communicating.  

This spring, the Lyceum is offering a special bookclub for primary students and their families, with a focus on reading the classics together.  Each meeting will include a craft, a book-themed snack and the chance to discuss great works of literature together. With books expertly chosen to fire up young imaginations, and the opportunity to get tips and tricks for keeping young readers engaged from one of Vancouver’s most respected children’s literature experts, this club promises to throw the doors to the club house wide, and beckon your whole family inside for a most magnificent adventure.

John Vaillant
The Jaguar's Children
April 23, 2015
7:00 PM

John Vaillant is the author of two works of non-fiction, The Golden Spruce which won the Governor General's Award, and The Tiger which was selected for the 2012 edition of CBC Radio's Canada Reads. His first novel, The Jaguar's Children, is a gripping literary thriller that follows Hector, a young Zapotec fleeing Mexico for a better life in the US with his friend, Cesar, a biotech researcher. When the two men are abandoned by smugglers in the desert, and Cesar slips into unconsciousness, Hector reaches out to the one name with an American number on Cesar's telephone - AnniMac - who becomes his lifeline to the world as he reveals the circumstances that caused him to make this dangerous journey.
