Canada 150 Offers an Opportunity to Promote Canadian Authors

Canada’s 150th birthday offers store owners and managers an opportunity to bring Canadian authors front and center. Or perhaps that should be centre, since we’re talking Canadian! Using the official Canada 150 logo, you could:

  • Make a large version of the logo and feature all your Canadian authors in a single section.
  • Make many small versions of the logo and place these as shelf-talkers everywhere you have a Canadian author.
  • You could also offer these at a discount for select periods, such as the week before and after July 1st.

A few years ago, I was asked to walk around my Non-Fiction shelves and see how many Canadian authors I could spot. At the time, I came up with these:

  • Ann Voskamp
  • Drew Dyck
  • Bruxy Cavey
  • Joe Amaral
  • Emily Wierenga
  • Ken Sigamatsu
  • Joe Boot
  • Lisa Elliott
  • Eric Wright
  • Roseanne Kydd
  • Sarah Tun
  • Tim Day
  • Rick Apperson
  • Sarah Bessey
  • Lee Beach
  • Judi Peers
  • Diane Lindstrom
  • Greg Paul
  • Alan Roxburgh
  • Tim Huff
  • Mark Buchanan
  • Brian Stiller
  • James Beverley
  • Sheila Wray Gregoire
  • Colin McCartney
  • Marv Penner
  • Henri Nouwen
  • Phil Callaway
  • Clarke Pinnock
  • Grant Jeffrey
  • John Bowen
  • Charles Price
  • James MacDonald

    What about Don Hutchinson – Under Siege http://www.donhutchinson.ca/book-under-siege/

      This looks really interesting. And it’s available from a real distributor! I just read his resumé on the site. If you know him, he should send us a press release we can run here. I also just clicked in a copy for my own store. Thanks.

    Great, will do. I am also excited to read it and glad it is a book that one of our distributor’s actually carries.
