Two rates are available for the Read for the Cure tickets. A Reserved Seating rate, which guarantees priority seating at the event. We recommend purchasing Reserved Seating tickets to any group of 4 or more wishing to be seated together. The second rate is General Admission. By purchasing a General Admission ticket, your position in the room is not pre-established. Therefore, we suggest that you arrive early to choose your seat among those available.

Each event consists of three authors speaking about their writing and their creative process. Ticketholders receive three books by the authors involved, compliments of Penguin Random House Canada. Begin the evening with a nice cocktail and take a look to the auction table to have a chance to win one of our great prizes. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres are served and bar service is available. A Q&A session and a book signing complete the event.

No worries; simply go to the check-in table with ID when you arrive at the event. We will have a ticket-holder checklist there and will check off your name when you present your ID.

For those who opt for advance shipping before the cut-off date (typically early  August), books are mailed out approximately mid-August. If you have not received your books by mid-September, please contact us.

Your books will be waiting for you at the event; you may pick them up at the check-in table when you arrive.

We are a Canadian charitable organization, unrelated to the US-based Susan G. Komen Read for the Cure magazine subscription service. We do not offer magazine subscriptions and are not affiliated with Susan G. Komen in any way. Please direct your enquiries to

If you discover that you cannot attend, you can designate a friend who is attending to pick up your books; if you do not have someone who can do this, notify us as soon as possible to make other arrangements.

At the moment Penguin Random House cannot issue e-books to readers directly because of their legal arrangements with e-book retailers. So, for now, they will continue to support Read for the Cure by providing physical books to all ticket-holders.
