The health, safety and well-being of our volunteers, employees and customers is our top priority and we are following the lead of Canadian public health authorities during this challenging time. Given the concerns around COVID-19, we have decided that it would be prudent to cancel our April 3 networding event and will update this page once we have confirmed details for next season.
Calgary Reads breakfast [book]club events
what is networding?
In a not-to-be-missed series of three morning events, we are connecting businesses and stimulating literacy conversations over breakfast and presentations by local authors. Following the success of our first event, with Todd Hirsch and his book, The Boiling Frog Dilemma, we’ll be networding with Adam Legge in February and Erin Thorp in April! Join us as we deepen our connections with the business community and ask for help to ensure that literacy thrives in Calgary.
Literacy is at the heart of every decision, every project, and every interaction. Without a foundation in even basic literacy, business would grind to a halt. Our very society would stop functioning.
Just a 1% increase in literacy skills equals:
An $18.4 billion increase to the GDP
A 2.5% increase in productivity
A $32 billion boost to national income
This is where Calgary Reads comes in!
