Banff Book Discussion Weekend 2024

59th Annual Banff Book Discussion Weekend

If you enjoy reading and discussing books in the beautiful setting of Banff then this weekend will be a real treat.  The Banff Book Discussion is held at the Banff Centre from Friday evening to Sunday noon, May 22 – 24, 2020.  During the weekend we have four book discussions. There is a book discussion on Friday Evening, discussions on Saturday AM and Saturday PM and the guest author’s book (The Best Laid Plans) is discussed on Sunday morning.  Terry Fallis will do a public reading on Saturday afternoon at the Banff Centre.  He will also be doing a private reading and a Q and A session to our group on Sunday morning, after our break-out discussions on The Best Laid Plans.  The book selections for 2020 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.  Everyone is welcome.
