Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante showed her support for Quebec writers today, encouraging the public to buy a book by an author from this province on Buy a Quebec Book Day, Aug. 12.
“On Aug. 12, I support our literary community! Whether it’s at my favourite neighbourhood bookstore or online, I support our talented authors! I invite Montrealers to buy a Quebec book and share their favourites of the moment!”—Valérie Plante
Quebec Premier François Legault posted a video shot in local bookstores to mark the occasion.
“Today is August 12, I buy a Quebec book day. We have very good writers in Quebec and they need to be encouraged. This year, we can all read more Quebec books!”—François Legault
