There are two things we love here at ALU: Canadian Literature and surprises… so we’ve put these two things together into one giant Super Secret Festival of Lit to celebrate the holiday season.
The "secret" portion of our Super Secret Festival of Lit is over because one thing we’re not very good at here at ALU is keeping secrets. As of December 1st we’ll be revealing our mystery titles one by one, right here on our blog.
Each day we’ll let you in on the secret of one of the titles plus share four more books curated to that day’s particular theme. If you purchase any of the titles mentioned between December 1st and December 18th, we’ll send you a free set of our CanLit holiday cards*.
The Big Reveal
Our reading reindeers have curated titles around 8 different themes that will speak to a diverse group of readers:
Hockey (Dec 1)
Young Adult Fiction (Dec 2)
LGBT Voices (Dec 3)
First Nations Voices (Dec 4)
Short Stories (Dec 7)
Mysteries & Thrillers (Dec 8)
First Fiction (Dec 9)
Poetry (Dec 10)
Follow along here and on social media using #unwrapALU as we reveal our Super Secret Festival of Lit titles. Give the gift of CanLit to every reader on your gift list this holiday season!

We can fill out the card for you! Simply write the card’s message in the comments section of your order - we’ll transcribe it in our neatest handwriting and pass it on to your giftee.
What if I miss the mystery part of ALU’s Super Secret Festival of Lit?
If you fail to get your hands on one of the five bundles for each of themed mystery titles, never fear, our Festival of Lit doesn’t just end on November 30th: We’ll begin revealing the books on December 1st.
