Mireille Messier is a Montreal-born, Ottawa-raised and now Toronto-based bilingual children’s author.

Mireille is currently accepting requests for virtual and in-person visits. She would be delighted to come meet your young readers from kindergarten to grade 5. Mireille can present in French, English or both.



Mireille’s rate for in person visits is $600 for a half-day (1 or 2 presentations) and $1100 for a full day ( 3-4 presentations), plus travel by car. HST extra. Lodging expenses may apply for venues outside the GTA. Please book early as Mireille’s schedule fills up fast!

Mireille’s rate for virtual presentations is $250 for a 45-minutes presentation (1-4 classes). Extra fees may apply for larger groups or for recorded sessions.

Most of Mireille’s books are published in French and in English and range in genre – from picture books to non-fiction. These are ideal when wishing to present the same book to French and English classes in immersion schools.
