Read Alberta Publisher Catalogue

On this page


The Read Alberta Publisher Catalogue was created to celebrate the many wonderful books published right here at home, as book publishers work every day to tell Alberta’s Story. Alberta’s book industry has a special spirit of innovation: we have Canada’s first open access publisher; our libraries are offering unprecedented access to local books online through the Read Alberta eBooks Collection and the ground-breaking Prairie Indigenous eBook Collection; our cutting-edge literary publishers punch above their weight when it comes to awards and critical acclaim; and our booksellers are resilient, offering previously unheard-of online ordering and delivery options, and pivoting daily to meet our needs.

Spearheaded by the Book Publishers Association of Alberta, the Read Alberta Publisher 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 own province, amidst a shared backdrop of cities, prairie fields, windswept badlands, boreal forest, rolling foothills, and majestic mountains.

We hope you’ll be excited and inspired by the amazing collection of books published in Alberta every year!
