BC Legislature to Host Fourth Annual BC Book Day on March 8th
February 20th, 2017
On March 8, 2017, the BC Legislature will host the fourth annual BC Book Day, offering an opportunity for MLAs and their staff to meet with the province’s publishers, authors, festival directors, librarians, and booksellers and to celebrate BC books. This year the date coincides with International Women’s Day; books on display will highlight the breadth of BC-published titles by, for, and about women. The Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia; the Honourable Shirley Bond, Minister of Jobs, Tourism, and Skills Training; and the Honourable Peter Fassbender, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, will offer remarks as part of the celebration. Following the display, a proclamation declaring March 8, 2017, as BC Book Day will be read in the Legislature.
We encourage publishers, authors, booksellers, and readers alike to share their BC reads and celebrate BC Book Day on March 8th by using the hashtag #BCBookDay on social media.
