Under the Cover Fundraiser

What is Under the Cover?

Spend an evening with a Canadian novelist and raise funds to support free adult literacy tutoring in the West Island.

Literacy Unlimited flagship fundraiser, Under the Cover, is a conversation with a Canadian author about books, the writing process, and topics of interest to the audience.Β 

This annual fundraiser helps raise money to support adults in the West Island to improve their English language literacy. The funds go to Literacy Unlimited’s free one-on-one tutoring services and community programs.

At eachΒ online Under the CoverΒ event, a moderator interviews an author for the first part of the evening, discussing books and the writing process. At the end of the evening, the author answers questions from the audience.

With low or no literacy, we would not be able to enjoy these authors’ timely books depicting Canadian history. With your support of our Under the Cover fundraiser, you are helping English-speaking adults in the West Island improve their reading skills enough to enjoy these authors’ works in the future. 

Under the Cover is Literacy Unlimited's flagship fundraiser. Donation receipts will be provided, with all proceeds benefiting Literacy Unlimited. 

The Pointe-Claire independent bookstore Librairie Clio will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of select books by the featured Under the Cover authors to Literacy Unlimited for a limited time. Shop online at store.librairieclio.ca/ or in person at Plaza Pointe-Claire.
