Canadian authors get naked for literacy
A new calendar will see literati like Angie Abdou and Yann Martel bare it all for literacy in 2014.
Developed by novelist Amanda Leduc and book blogger Allegra Young, the Bare It for Books project is using the idea of a nearly nude calendar to raise awareness of and support for the Canadian literary landscape.
Participating authors in the 2014 calendar include Angie Abdou (January), Trevor Cole (February), Farzana Doctor (March), Dave Bidini (April), Miranda Hill (May), Daniel MacIvor (June), Yasuko Thanh (July), Terry Fallis (August), Sachiko Murakami (September), Vincent Lam (October), Saleema Nawaz (November), and Yann Martel (December).
Although the calendar isn't on sale quite yet (you can purchase yours this October), you can contribute to the project's Indiegogo campaign and get yourself some sweet swag while you're at it.
