Welcome to the first episode of Literacy Quebec! A podcast for english-speaking, lifelong literacy learners in Quebec. Join podcast hosts and LQ's very own Chris Shee and Jaimie Cudmore as they explore the theme of "Defining Literacy" in the first episode. 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!
