In addition to releasing the Open Book App, Open Book: Toronto and Open Book: Ontario have also launched mobile versions for both sites. No more squinting at the full version of the sites on your mobile screens: these new pages offer mobile readers smartly designed, easy to read and quick access to a wealth of literary news, literary event listings and writer-in-residence posts.

Open Book is deeply grateful to the Ontario Media Development Corporation for its support with the development of the Open Book App and the mobile pages. Stop14 Media and Procomp worked with Open Book to create these new mobile platforms.
