“Books are a form of political action. Books are knowledge. Books are reflection. Books change your mind.”
– Toni Morrison (1931-2019)

The Canadian Women’s Foundation’s Tireless Readers Collective brings book lovers together with stellar writers who shine a spotlight on justice and gender equality. Join us in this exciting reading journey.
