19 May 2022

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, visited Assumption Elementary School in Ottawa, Canada. Known for her championship of literacy, the Duchess marked the visit with a reading of The Library Bus, (Pajama Press) written by Bahram Rahman and illustrated by Gabrielle Grimard. This picture book celebrates women and girls finding innovative ways to spread education in Afghanistan, where the author was born. The book was a finalist for the 2021 Governor General’s Literary Award and won the Middle East Book Award, among other honors.

The visit to Assumption Elementary School was part of a three-day Canadian tour being undertaken by Prince Charles and the Duchess to mark the Platinum Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th year on the throne.
