Banff Book Discussion Weekend 2023


What Happens on the 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 26 – 28, 2023.  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 (Butter Honey Pig Bread) is discussed on Sunday morning.  Francesca Ekwuyasi will be doing a presentation open to the public on Saturday afternoon and she will also do a private reading and a Q and A session to our group on Sunday morning, after our break-out discussion.  The book selections for 2023 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.
