    The theme of this year’s book week, Classic Canadian Reading, is in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables. Many of the activities suggested in the book kits sent across the country will celebrate Canadian classics like Maurice Richard’s The Hockey Sweater. Various Canadian authors and illustrators, including Indigo Community members K.V. Johansen and Marsha Skrypuck, as well as bestselling and award-winning authors Marthe Jocelyn, Dominique Demers and Ian Wallace, will be touring schools, libraries, bookstores and community centres across Canada to do storytelling, Q&As and promote literacy. In total, twenty-nine authors, illustrators and storytellers will tour and reach close to 35,000 children and teens nation-wide. As well, over 400 readings will be given in over 175 communities.
