Endicott to launch Good Reads series on International Literacy Day

Good Reads, a partnership between Edmonton’s Grass Roots Press and ABC Life Literacy Canada, is set to release its second series of books for adult literacy learners. For 2011, the series of short titles written in an accessible language and easy to read format will feature titles by Marina Endicott, Joy Fielding, Robert Hough, Anthony Hyde, and Francis Itani.

Endicott will launch her book, New Year’s Eve, on Sept. 8, UNESCO’s International Literacy Day, in Edmonton.

The inaugural Good Reads list included Easy Money by financial adviser and TV personality Gail Vaz-Oxlade. The book was a surprise hit, spending a few weeks on Canadian bestseller lists.
