Literacy Quebec Podcast -E1

Defining Literacy—Defining-Literacy-e3ast8/a-ab0u14

Welcome to the first episode of Literacy Quebec!  A podcast for English-speaking, lifelong literacy learners in Quebec. On this week’s episode, we will be defining literacy.   Literacy is more than just knowing how to read and write – it’s about being able to interact with the world around you to your fullest potential.  We will have special guests, Margo Legault – Literacy Quebec,  Joy Fyckes – Reclaim Literacy, and Rev. Brian Perron – Church of Epiphany. We also will share submissions from Ruth Thomas – South Shore Reading Council, Cheryl Henry-Leggo – Gaspesie Literacy Council, Wendy Seys – Yamaska Literacy Council, and Michele Gagnon – Western Quebec Literacy Council. The episode ends with announcements of upcoming literacy events in Quebec.  We are working on our sound and editing! Thanks for being a part of this journey!
