programs & projects: on the same page

On the Same Page is a province-wide reading initiative that encourages all Manitobans to read and talk about the same book at the same time. The annual program was launched by The Winnipeg Foundation in 2008 and is now run in partnership with Winnipeg Public Library.

The program, which highlights and promotes on Manitoba writers, includes book giveaways, author appearances and a variety of special public events inspired by the chosen book. The shared experience of reading the same book and participating in events brings readers together to discuss and debate issues and themes identified in the novel, creating opportunities for personal and creative expression.

On the Same Page book selections:
  • 2012/13 - The Lucky Ones: African Refugees' Stories of Extraordinary Courage, by Anne Mahon
  • 2012/13 - Manitowapow: Aboriginal Writings from the Land of Water, edited by Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair and Warren Cariou
  • 2011/12 - The Setting Lake Sun / Le soleil du lac qui se couche, by J. R. Léveillé
