Summer Book Exchange

Bring a book, leave with a book

Sunday, July 9, 2017
1:00pm - 3:30pm
$10 + membership 
Includes: coffee/tea + a treat

What is it?

Our Summer Book Exchange is a chance for book lovers to talk about and trade books. Bring a copy of a favourite book and take someone else's home with you. We encourage previously-loved books in good condition (new copies welcome too) and in any genre, though we suspect that fiction and creative nonfiction will be the most popular. You'll have ten minutes to present your book. After each book has been presented, they'll be exchanged by draw (and further trades may follow).

Is it for me?

Our Summer Book Exchange is for you if liked doing book reports as a kid and like reading aloud. It's for you if you're a passionate reader who loves books and discovering new ones. 

How will I benefit?

  • You'll get to discover other people's favourite books
  • you’ll get to hang out with fellow bibliophiles and talk about books.

What will I get?

  • ten minutes to talk about your book and read an excerpt
  • a favourite book of someone else's to take home
  • coffee/tea + a treat.

What other details do I need to know?

You'll receive suggested guidelines for how to talk about your book. You'll also be asked to submit the title of your book so that we can compile a master list for sharing and make sure there are no duplicates. 

Registration is now open and limited to ten people.
