Two classes from the Howard S. Billings High School in Châteauguay got a visit from author Ken Setterington, after winning the TD Kids Book Club.

Every year, CBC picks a children's book and organizes a contest between Montreal schools. The winning school gets copies of the book and a visit from the author.

This year CBC chose Branded by the Pink Triangle by Ken Setterington, a former librarian and the first Children and Youth Advocate for the Toronto Public Library.

Students and teachers from Howard S. Billings High School told Sue Smith on CBC’s Homerun they were looking forward to meeting Setterington, because they were moved by the stories in the book and had a lot of questions for him.

While the TD Kids Book Club is over for Montreal contest winners, the contest tied to the TD Canadian Children's Book Award is still ongoing.

Children aged 5-13 can enter by picking a favourite book among this year's finalists.

The prize is a trip for two to Toronto to attend the gala on November 6, and includes two nights' accommodation plus $500 in spending money.

The contest closes October 23.
