The 2021 PGI Season is here!
The Peter Gzowski Foundation for Literacy is happy to announce that its 2021 PGI season will take place.
No matter the venue, all PGI partners are mindful that people’s safety comes first during the pandemic. Some PGI partners are mounting their own online, virtual events. Other PGI events may be in person in those provinces and territories with reduced restrictions. A number of PGIs are joining together to produce a National Virtual Event to be held on a date of their choice throughout the year.
PGIs remain committed to raising awareness about literacy and helping to support literacy programs across the country.
The 2021 PGI Season will be a mix of online and in-person events recognizing the need to stay safe during the pandemic.
Five PGIs are participating in a National Virtual event which blends a national online show with local awards and a poet laureate.
The National Virtual event is hosted by Rick Mercer with celebrity author Louise Penny and music from Twin Flames, Stephen Fearing and Ashley McIsaac.
The other PGIs will host gala dinners, golf tournaments, a bowl-a-thon, and an on-line Scrabble game.
