Various location in Gatineau

Gatineau Ville Lecture


In May 2017, Gatineau will play host to the largest (and BEST!) Canadian reading festival. Ville Lecture comes to town with stellar programming that will entice and interest all readers from the seasoned veteran to the beginner, young and old. From May 6 to 13 2017, we’ll present local artists and specially invited guests, we’ll feature foodie fare for the palate, and celebrate Canada’s Sesquicentennial. There’ll be music for your ears and poems delivered with your pizza. You’ll meet authors and blaze literary trails. All this and more to make Gatineau rock to the rhythm of words.

Come join the party!

Organized by the National Reading Campaign, in collaboration with Gatineau 2017, la Ville de Gatineau et Tourisme Outaouais, Gatineau Ville lecture brings together outspoken advocates from literary and cultural workers to community leaders, professionals, and people at large. All avid readers who want to take part in this great celebration of books and reading. Join the party!
