New ebook editions of classic titles now available
Including Angélique, The Drawer Boy, and Dreary & Izzy
Playwrights Canada Press is proud to announce the release of new ebook editions of some of our classic titles, made possible with the support of Ontario Creates, the efforts of Beate Schwirtlich at Workhorse Editorial and Production Services, and the Canadian Electronic Library.
These new ebooks are available in two accessible file formats: pdfs and epubs. These files conform to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA, and contain structural and table of contents navigation, alternative text, captions, print-equivalent page numbering, and reading order.
Not sure which file you’d want to use? An epub contains reflowable text that can be resized and adapted to your reading requirements using special software or an e-reader such as Google Books, Apple Books, Kobo, etc., while pdfs will open up in Reader, Preview, or your browser. (They will work in many e-reading programs as well but are not reflowable.) We recommend checking that your software or hardware can read an epub or pdf file before purchasing.
We will be releasing more batches of accessible ebooks throughout the year. The first batch, which is now available, includes:
- The Adventures of A Black Girl in Search of God by Djanet Sears
