Welcome to Reading Town Canada!

On the first week of May every year, the National Reading Campaign partners with a city to create an exemplary model of what a reading Canada looks like. In previous years, citizens of Moose Jaw and Charlottetown wove reading into every aspect of their lives over one week through a series of amazing events! This section contains archival pages from our 2015 Reading Town. In 2016, we rebranded as Reading Town/Ville Lecture, a truly bilingual festival which took place in Sudbury and across Prince Edward Island. Next year, we will repeat in both those regions while also adding Gatineau as our largest city ever. Look out for more details to come!
