Read up for Georgian Bay Reads
Come kick off Ontario Public Library Week at the 11th annual Georgian Bay Reads event, also known as the most entertaining literary event of the season.
Defenders from five local libraries will argue for their favorite Canadian book to be the one book that you will want to read this season.
Twenty-one Things You May Not Know About The Indian Act by Bob Joseph is the choice of Lesley Martel, representing Clearview Public Library.
The other contenders in this year’s Battle of the Books are This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki (Alexandra Robinson for Collingwood Public Library), The Luminous Sea by Melissa Barbeau (Jack Pledger for Meaford Public Library), The Home for Unwanted Girls by Joanna Goodman (Katherine Wallis for Springwater Public Library) and the Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson (Melanie Case for Wasaga Beach Public Library). It is a truly unique collection of history, mystery and tales of life’s tribulations.
Words will fly as we celebrate the stories of Canadian authors at the Elmvale Community Hall (33 Queen Street West, Elmvale) starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19. Admission is free but seating is limited.
Complimentary tickets to our local version of Canada Reads are now available at the participating libraries.
Please call 705-428-3595 or drop by the Stayner Branch to reserve your seats for this illuminating night of laughter, fun and lively discussion.
