On Friday, May 29, Uxbridge, Ontario, will be showing the world how much it loves to read. That day marks the beginning of the town’s first-ever town-wide book fair, a multi-day event that will support local schools and showcase Canadian authors.
Friday’s kick-off will see Brock Street closed for an hour-long flash-mob read-in event attended by elementary students, teachers, family, and friends. From June 1–4, a different Canadian author will be featured each day, including Rebecca Bender (Giraffe Meets Bird) on June 2nd.
A portion of purchases at Blue Heron Books, the event organizer, may be applied to the school of the buyer’s choice throughout the first four days of June.
The organizers encourage literature lovers to share their reading photos online at #ReadIN.
