This year once again, The Gift of Reading was the official cause of Montreal’s Salon du livre book fair. From November 20 to 25, 2013, some 2,200 brand new books and $1,500 were collected.
The Foundation wishes to pay tribute to the commitment and devotion of the 50 volunteers who lent us a hand during those six days. Thanks also to the actresses—Salomé Corbo, Micheline Bernard and Valérie Blais, not to mention Marie Turgeon—who supported us at this event. Without them, none of this would be possible.
We also extend our heartfelt thanks to the management and board of the Salon du livre de Montréal, who took up the cause of the Gift of Reading from the very beginning.
