The Saskatchewan Children’s Writers’ Round Robin started in 1984 with six members. It has grown to 12 members, spread across provinces, and nurtured stories, poems, plays, and more. Here are some photos from various years.
The Robins inside the Mae Wilson Theatre in Moose Jaw, October 2009. We were given a private tour of this historic building.
