“CanLit’s crowned king of chuckles” (Telegraph-Journal) -- returns to read from No Relation, his fourth novel. Terry Fallis’s sharp, funny wit takes readers into the world of identity, inheritance, and belonging, begging the question: What’s in a name? Terry is the author of four national bestsellers. He is the winner of Canada Reads and the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour.  

$10.00. Purchase tickets ahead. 

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $157 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.


Those of you who have been in the Library recently--and many of you have since we have been unusually busy all summer--will have noticed a strong smell of paint in the air. Sorry about that, but the Festival Room, in which all of our more popular events take place, was in need of freshening up. By the time this column appears on August 21st, the paint smell will be a faint memory (I hope) so come in to admire the result and, at the same time, take the opportunity to buy some books at our GIANT BOOK SALE which will be in full swing until 5PM on the 23rd.
