The inaugural issue features over 100 titles from seventeen Alberta-based publishers.

Read Alberta was created to celebrate the many wonderful books that tell Alberta’s Story. The catalogue highlights the work by Alberta publishers and Alberta authors, designers, editors and illustrators, in celebration of the distinct, diverse voices coming out of our province.

“Featuring titles across all genres, the Read Alberta Catalogue truly represents the range of Alberta-published titles,” says Kieran Leblanc, Executive Director of the BPAA. “It will be a valuable resource for booksellers, librarians, teachers, and the general public who want to Read Alberta!” 

The first issue of the Read Alberta Catalogue is available as a printable PDF. Future editions will be released in both print and digital formats. More information about the catalogue can be found on the Read Alberta Catalogue webpage
