This event is part of the Read Quebec: Holiday Book Fest, presented by the Association of English-language Publishers of Quebec and the Quebec Writers’ Federation. Learn more at readquebec.ca

How to participate:

  • Draft a team of up to 3 people and register for the event (you can also play solo or with one other person). You’ll receive a link to join the Zoom event on Saturday the 28th.
  • Choose a team name.
  • Be ready with a pen and paper, and remember NO googling! You can have smart friends not smart phones! We will work with the honour system, honorable as we are.
  • Make sure you don’t post answers in the event’s Zoom chat. You’ll need to organize a group chat on the platform of your choice (i.e. text, Messenger, Whatapp, Google Hangouts, or just pick up the phone!) for the event so you can communicate with your team, if you don’t live in the same place.
  • Each team will elect a captain who records ‘final answers’ for each round on paper.
  • The quiz will be divided into several rounds with breaks between for teams to discuss.
  • Answers will be given after each round and team captains will report scores to the quizmaster.

Top scores will win prizes from our generous donors: Pow Pow Press, Véhicule Press, Metonymy Press, and Drawn & Quarterly.

Got it? Got it. See you there!
