The Big Book Club and Bookie Awards

It’s like Oscar night for children’s literacy

Our annual gala celebration of reading brings together book lovers and literacy champions to raise money and awareness for our programs and initiatives. Enjoy readings from featured authors, connect with others who share your love of reading and help us recognize Calgarians who are working hard to support childhood literacy.

Our Bookie Awards honour groups and individuals who are helping us make a difference in the lives of Alberta children. One award is given in each of three categories: business, education and community.

If you love books and want to help us share the joy of reading, this is an event you won’t want to miss. You can also become an event or award sponsor and show our entire community how you support childhood literacy.
