The 57th Annual Banff Book Discussion Weekend
The BBDW is being held at the Banff Centre from Friday evening to Sunday noon, June 1 – 3rd 2018. During the weekend participants discuss four novels. There is a discussion on Friday Evening, discussions on Saturday AM and Saturday PM and the guest author’s book is discussed on Sunday morning. Kim Thuy will do a public reading on Saturday afternoon at the Banff Centre and will do a reading and a question and answer session to our group on Sunday morning, after our break-out discussions on Ru. The book selections for 2018 have been chosen to stimulate thought and discussion and to appeal to adults. The atmosphere is friendly and informal. There are no prerequisites for this program other than reading the books before attending the discussions! Social gatherings take place after the Friday and Saturday PM discussions.
Accommodation is available at the Banff Centre or off-campus at the various B & B or hotels in the area.
Come join us in the tranquil setting of The Banff Centre
