Public Readings by Canadian Writers in Canada is a program initiated and sponsored by the Canada Council. Its objectives are to increase the public's knowledge and appreciation of Canadian writing and to provide opportunities for writers to reach a large audience.
The program allows art galleries, community centres, libraries, and post-secondary institutions in Canada to apply for assistance in inviting Canadian authors to read from their works and to discuss them with the public. Normally all readings are open to the public free of charge.
St. Jerome's participation in the reading series began in 1984 and continues to the present.
