Banff Book Discussion Weekend 2023

About Us

The Banff Book Discussion is a non-profit society that is organized and run by book-loving volunteers.  Each year we hold one event, which is the Banff Book Discussion Weekend (BBDW).  The BBDW is held at the Banff Centre, usually on the last week in May.  We discuss four books during the weekend, one on Friday evening, two on Saturday and one on Sunday Morning.  We invite the author of one of our discussion books and discuss his/her book on Sunday morning.  After the Sunday discussion we have a private presentation on the book.

This year our guest author is Frances Itani. We will be discussing her novel The Company We Keep.

Frances was the 2021 recipient of the Writer’s Trust of Canada’s annual Matt Cohen.  She is a member of the Order of Canada
