Guelph Book Bash Festival 2019

Sat, Oct 19 2019, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Guelph Book Bash Festival is coming up on Saturday October 19, 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, at Harcourt Memorial United Church.

The festival is an annual celebration of the books published by Guelph and area authors over the previous year. Over thirty authors are in attendance to sell their books, chat with attendees, and sign copies. The authors are joined by many of Guelph's micro-presses, bookstores, libraries, cultural groups, and literacy organizations, all the people who help make up our great local book culture.

The Book Bash is also where Vocamus Writers Community launches its annual Rhapsody anthology, a collection of poetry by area authors.

There is no cost for the event, but donations are accepted for Action Read, which provides literacy programs in the community.

The venue is wheelchair accessible.

If you’re looking to volunteer, we can always use help setting up, taking down, welcoming guests, handing out programs, and so forth.
