BookShorts Literacy Program
Specializing in digital media marketing and integrated cross-platform campaigns.
BookShorts Literacy Program focuses on the promotion of Canadian authors and publishers as a means to support literacy in all its forms. In tandem with BookShorts Inc., the company creates and distributes film, video, television and digital media specifically adapted from books.
Our clients and partners are publishers, artists, television and film producers. BookShorts Literacy Program works on an ongoing basis with some of the most progressive firms in a number of cultural industries. We bring these relationships, with all the financial, promotional and industry support that they convey, to every project big or small.
If you’d like to send me a review copy of a book to consider for adaptation to screen, please email me first to make sure it’s a fit. Unsolicited books will not be considered, and everyone knows a unicorn dies whenever a book goes to waste.
“We were able to premiere ‘Night Work: A Sawchuk Poem’ film at an afternoon press conference prior
to the launch of the book at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on February 19, 2008…”
This press conference resulted in very important press coverage from Canadian Press, the National Post sports reporter and Radio Canada International. The press who attended were able to interview the author Randall Maggs and hear him read from the book – this resulted in more coverage than would have occurred from the evening’s book launch.
