Read The North This Canada Day


Oh, Canada. You really are a beautiful place of talented entrepreneurs, anecdotes of your founders and the trading travelers, glorious mountains ripe for the climbing, and coasts that inspire even the faintest of imaginations.

For some reason, perhaps because you want to keep them all to yourself, many of your brightest and most talented are hidden from the international mainstream.

There are so many artists and authors that I’d had no idea about until I moved to Canada and was encouraged to ‘#ReadtheNorth’.

The Read the North campaign is Indigo’s celebration of Canadian writers and their works. This is more than a shout-out to Canada’s 150th year, but Indigo has been a Canadian company since its very start. Want a history lesson? Click here.

So, to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, Indigo has released a coffee table book, The World Needs More Canada. It’s filled with photography, stories, and insights from 100+ notable Canadian celebrities, politicians, musicians, and artists.

    We’re celebrating Canada Day here at home with a BBQ, some sparklers and maybe a cake. (‘Cause you can’t have a birthday party without cake!)
