The 1001 Canadian Nights Promotion will help show Kobo?s millions of Canadian followers the breadth of ebooks available from Canadian independent publishers based in Ontario.

With such a broad range of genres and so many books readers will be able to browse each category and find numerous books to download.

Sixteen OBPO members are participating including small independent presses, children?s publishers, specialty publishers of poetry and plays, academic presses and general publishers. Again, the breadth of their offerings will be shown through this promotion. OBPO member publishers will be providing support for the promotion through social media.
