A unique literary event

 

The Cancer Research Society's Read for the Cure is a pan-Canadian literary event, presented by Penguin Random House Canada, that has raised over $1.6 million for cancer research since its inception. By purchasing a ticket to one of our events, you are actively contributing to the Cancer Research Society's environmental fund.

This year we are taking Read for the Cure virtual, which means that not only will you be able to tune into the event right from the comfort of your home, but you'll also be able to attend the events happening across the whole country!
