Reading Town Sudbury Ville Lecture

After successful first and second editions in Moose Jaw and Charlottetown, Canada’s largest bilingual literary festival hits Sudbury in 2016, from April 30th to May 8th.

Reading Town Sudbury Ville Lecture Lecture is the The National Reading Campaign’s Reading Town Canada 2016, and the first bilingual Reading Town yet! Reading Town Sudbury Ville Lecture is Canada’s largest bilingual reading festival, and the coolest literary celebration in the country.

Reading Town is about reading and also about community. Children, teenagers and adults alike can all explore events and activities that promote literacy by publicly celebrating reading and the readers who love it.

Why The City of Greater Sudbury?

The panel of authors, publishers, librarians, academics, publishers and teachers that make up the National Reading Campaign’s Board of Directors chose Sudbury for it’s unique linguistic makeup, its proximity to the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation, and its central role in the artistic life of Northern Ontario.
