Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) is Monday, October 27, 2014. The purpose of the event is to promote the love of reading, to demonstrate it as a life-long habit, and, hopefully, a daily one. If you’d like to register your participation there’s a link on the BCTLA DEAR blog. Participation doesn’t have to be onerous—the act of setting time aside to read sets an example of its value, and if conversations arise out of that—even better!
We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil a investi 153 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
