A little bit about Annie

Annie Wood. Author. Curator. Designer. Digital Imaging Specialist. Educator.

Themes of inclusive history, identity, gender equality and memory are central to Annie’s creative and professional work.

Annie is a founding member of Kids Can Press, Canada’s leading children’s book publishing house. She co-authored The Sandwich, which was short-listed for the City of Toronto Book Awards, and published dozens of children’s books that contributed to a richer understanding of the Canadian mosaic. Her portfolio as a museum exhibition specialist through her company Circle Media includes exhibitions in Canada and Asia.

She is the founder of the “Inventive Women” and “Inventive Kids” websites/blogs, and the author of the children’s book “Canadian Women Invent!” which presents the story of Canadian female ingenuity through invention and innovation. “Canadian Women Invent!” was awarded an “Our Choice” designation by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre. Currently, she is writing an adventure series for middle grade readers, as well as an anecdotal history of the Canadian children’s publishing industry.

Born in a little Macedonian village, Canada is her sweet home.
