About Us


Courtney Spence is a Toronto based artist & creative facilitator with a passion for reading, problem solving, and creative exploration.  Her installation ‘The Fantastical Book Garden’ was born out of a love of books and is intended to be a celebration of the power of reading to positively impact and change lives. She believes that “a single passage in a book can change the course of one’s life forever”  and that reading is the gateway into endless possibilities.

The Fantastical Book Garden project  was founded out of this equal love of books & art and its mission is to celebrate the joys and benefits of reading through Artistic installations and Mobile Libraries around the world
