Une ville, un livre

Since 2019, Une ville, un livre has sought to connect the local community through a single Québec-authored book. Book clubs, meetings, and other activities are organized to foster conversation among readers. Called One City, One Book in English, this initiative originated in Seattle and has been adopted by a number of UNESCO Cities of Literature.

As the cradle of French-language culture in North America, Old Québec bears the traces of a long literary tradition. Launched in the summer of 2021, this discovery trail puts the city’s rich history literally on the map. People who follow the trail are invited to (re)discover 25 points of interest and their treasures, and take a quiz for a chance to win prizes.
