The continued generosity of TVA's Parent Council has allowed the Ontario Library Association's reading program for grade 9 - 12 students to run another year at Vista. The Forest of Reading program chooses top-quality Canadian literature for school-aged students from grade JK to grade 12 and to adult readers in the community at large. The White Pine booklist of ten titles is approrpiate for secondary students. An attempt is made to appeal to both male and female readers and to include a variety of genres.
Students who voted at TVA unanimously chose the book "Exit, pursued by a bear" by E. K. Johnston. The province-wide vote occurred at the end of April and the winner will be announced at the celebration of reading in Toronto in mid-May. More than 10,000 people attend the Festival in Toronto, which is co-presented by International Festival of Authors (IFOA), at the Harbourfront Centre.
