National Read a Book Day is Sept. 6 and the Village of Queen Charlotte will be celebrating with a week of activities.
The village is inviting people to participate in a literary costume contest by dressing up like their favourite book characters.
For a chance to win prizes, email firstname.lastname@example.org or upload your photo to Facebook and tag #QCReadABook and @VillageofQueenCharlotte before Sept. 10.
The village office will also have free books to give away starting Sept. 8, as part of the “Blind Date With a Book” event.
All books will be gift wrapped as a reminder that people should not judge a book by its cover, though staff may provide synopses or drawings as a guide.
According to an update from the village, more surprises may be announced between Sept. 8 and 11.
