Celebrating Canadian Authors

Every July 1 we pay tribute to some of Canada's best literary talents. From classics like Fifth Business and Anne of Green Gables to contemporary and award-winning works of fiction like Life of Pi and Fall on Your Knees, Canada's authors have proven themselves to be a diverse, multicultural group with a decidedly unique flair for story-telling.
