The Dundurn Group Says, "Read Local"

Share |

The Dundurn Group has started a nifty Internet campaign to promote local authors. Web Marketer Ashleigh Gardner writes on Dundurn's Defining Canada blog, "There are so many books written about the places that we visit each day.... A well-described setting makes it obvious that the author walked through those same streets, crafting the same book that you’re now reading – with the hope that one day you’d read it." You can find out about books written about many familiar places on Dundurn's Read Local Map, where you'll also find photos of authors in their local bookstores. Have a look at the map for a suggestion for your next read. As Gardner says, "You eat local, buy local, why not read local?"
