A Celebration of Reading
My home town, Gatineau, is one of this year’s hosts of Canada’s largest festival of reading. We’re an official “Reading Town” this month, with events and presentations that come to a close tomorrow. It’s all part of the National Reading Campaign’s mission to make reading a national priority.
I’m doing my bit to celebrate. Tomorrow afternoon, I’ll be at the Mill Road Community Space in Chelsea (just a few kilometres from home), speaking with readers of all ages about reading and writing and how they go together so well.
There’s a full day planned with authors, musicians, and other creative people from the region. So, since it promises to be a rainy weekend — and reading is a great activity for rainy days as well as sunny beaches — come on out and say hello if you’re in the area.
Have a great weekend!
