Reading Lights Project Launched on Family Literacy Day

Reading Lights celebrates the work of BC children’s book authors and illustrators and offers unexpected encounters with an array of stories for children and their families near parks, playgrounds, schools, and libraries throughout Vancouver.

Intended to spark an interest in stories and reading, the program features excerpts of books and illustrations on lamp posts across the city for all to enjoy.

Twenty Reading Lights plaques have been installed as of January 2016, and the project was officially launched at the Vancouver Public Library on Family Literacy Day, January 27.

Reading Lights is a collaborative project of Vancouver Public Library and the Children’s Writers and Illustrators of BC Society.

Explore this interactive map and discover more about these exceptional children’s books and the authors and illustrators who bring them to life, including BC Book Prize shortlisted author Ashley Spires (pictured at right).
