To the rest of the country, he is known as His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada. To his grandchildren, he is “Grandpa Book,” and that is who animatedly will read to a crowd of children and their parents at the launch of Storytime at Rideau Hall on Saturday, June 25th
. This summer, every Friday and Saturday afternoon, Frontier College volunteers will welcome both local and visiting children to our Reading Tent on the grounds of Rideau Hall, the Governor General’s official residence in Ottawa. Kids and families can read by themselves, have a volunteer read to them in English or French, or participate in fun literacy activities. With the donation of the Governor General’s Literary Award-winning children’s books, along with books donated by Frontier College, children of all ages can enjoy settling in under the Reading Tent for an afternoon of fun. Visit Story Time at Rideau Hall
