Read Local BC

The Association of Book Publishers of British Columbia (ABPBC) is proud to announce the launch of readlocalbc.ca, a new website that focuses on the vibrant community of authors, publishers, bookstores, and libraries that make up our province’s literary landscape.

In 2015, the ABPBC began the Read Local BC campaign as a series of annual events and promotions in communities around the province to raise awareness of the diversity of writing being published in our province. The readlocalbc.ca website extends the reach of this campaign to an online hub, including author interviews, excerpts from newly released titles, event listings for readings and launches around the province, and other news about BC books. The site’s content reflects the wide variety of BC’s publishers, including fiction, non-fiction, regional interest, literary, children’s, scholarly, and educational titles. Read Local BC will engage with readers year-round throughout the province through the website, a newsletter, and social media, complemented by seasonal events.
