The One eRead/Un Livrel Canada is a digital, bilingual, cross-Canada book club connecting readers to one another and to their libraries.
2023’s One eRead Canada initiative was Tatouine by Jean-Christophe Réhel, translated by Katherine Hastings and Peter McCambridge from the original French, Ce qu’on respire sur Tatouine.

About the Book
To whet your appetite, here’s a review of Tatouine:
Getting the Books
Please check your local Public Library for available copies of the book in print or digital format.
The French Audiobook is available from a special production of Radio-Canada’s OHdio, available now.
Accessible versions Tatouine are available in both French and English for people with print disabilities through the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA) and the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS). Service québécois du livre (SQLA) also makes copies available for their subscribers.
The Canadian Urban Libraries Council / Conseil des Bibliothèques Urbaines du Canada (CULC/CBUC) has created an opportunity for all public libraries to participate in a Canada-wide digital reading program. The initiative is similar to a “one book, one city” initiative, but on a national scale and in digital format.
