Georgian Bay Reads Returning to Meaford Hall


The biggest literary event of the year along the southern shore of Georgian Bay will be held in Meaford at the Meaford Hall Arts and Cultural Centre on Saturday, October 22, at 7:00 p.m.

Georgian Bay Reads is an entertaining evening guaranteed to provide laughs and cheers as representatives of five local libraries hash out the best Canadian book in a classic battle of the books.

A defender from Meaford, Clearview, Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, and Springwater public libraries will champion a book by a Canadian author. The moderator gives each defender an opportunity to impress the audience with their knowledge of and passion for their chosen book. The defenders must convey their thoughts in a timely manner as bells clang if their time is exceeded. With each round of questions, one defender is eliminated until the winner is determined.

Based on previous Georgian Bay Reads, this event will be a sell-out. Get there early and nibble on local appetizers and beverages then watch until there is only one book remaining.

Georgian Bay Reads is an event our library and community look forward to every year. It is a great way to raise the profile of our Canadian authors and the library, plus it is so much fun!” says Amy Jennison, Community Outreach Coordinator of the Meaford Public Library.

Tickets are available now at the Meaford Public Library and other participating libraries. Drop by to pick up yours today. Don’t miss out on this great night of literary fun. May the best library win!
