One Book One Burlington 2017

It's all about enjoying a Great Canadian Novel—together. The idea behind this program is a simple one: over the summer, Burlington residents read a work of Canadian fiction chosen by a panel of local book lovers, and then come together for a variety of activities and special events planned around the themes of the book in the fall. Reserve a copy of the book now (it's still a secret!)

The 'One Book' Story
