All Lit Up’s parent organization) launched Bookville, a collection of 100+ books that reflect five awesome places in Canada, both from those places and from the country-over. Thanks to Canada Book Fund’s Recovery Initiative, we were able to put together this exciting collection that’s accessible to all book lovers.Bookville is a new way for our highlighted communities to access author interviews, exclusive content, and brilliant Canadian books – like having their own local bookstore right in their browser. This curated collection of Bookville books is available through All Lit Up with free shipping, or can be found at your favourite independent Canadian bookstore – the “shop local” button on All Lit Up’s book pages helps you do just that.But where is Bookville? Well, we believe that every community can be Bookville!
