Writing & literature

Georgian Bay Reads brings together five neighbouring libraries to celebrate Canadian authors and communication between libraries in an event filled with lively discussion, good-natured competition, and an enthusiastic audience. For the annual event, each library chooses a defender and a book, in hopes of convincing fellow defenders and audience members of their books’ merit in a live debate. The winning defender takes home a trophy for his or her library. To find out more, visit

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.
