Reading Town Sudbury Ville Lecture 2016 runs from April 30 to May 8 and is an action-packed week of bilingual literary events happening throughout Greater Sudbury to promote reading, and to celebrate local authors, writers, musicians, and filmmakers.
A series of amazing events programmed by the National Reading Campaign, a non-profit organization, will combine to create an exemplary Reading Town in Canada.
One such event is Reading Menu in which local authors will be paired with local restaurants to inspire a menu.
"This could be as simple as Alphabet soup or Green Eggs and Ham or as creative as the Ernie Coombs sandwich" said Derek Young, the Sudbury event coordinator.
"We are inviting local restaurants to share their menu with us and we'll match them up with local sweet and savoury writers to inspire some tasty treats.”
Participating restaurants include Gonga's Grill, the Townehouse Tavern, Laughing Buddha, Tuco's Tacos, and Peppi Panini.
The National Reading Campaign is also inviting all pizza shops and local poets to participate in the Pizza Poems event. During Reading Town Sudbury Ville Lecture 2016, local poetry will be delivered with each pizza.
If you are a local business, writer, poet or author and would like to participate, please call 705-918-2601.
On the first week of May every year, the National Reading Campaign partners with a city to create an exemplary model of what a reading Canada looks like.
In previous years, citizens of Moose Jaw and Charlottetown wove reading into every aspect of their lives over one week through a series of amazing events.
This year, the biggest Reading Town ever will be coming to Sudbury.
