In recognition of Ontario Trillium Funding, the South Simcoe Arts Council in collaboration with the Gibson Cultural Centre hosted an exciting literary event!
Therese Cilia, a former Tottenham resident and the illustrator of "Over by the Harbour" is has brought the pages of this new children's book, set to the scenes of the east coast, to life at the South Simcoe Arts Council. Therese Cilia was a student and assistant of the late local painter Alice Forestell for six years.
The book teaches children about the province's animals in their natural setting in a fun way using counting, rhymes and verses. An excellent keepsake and gift illustrated by local talent.
