Auction and sale of new Canadian books, just in time for holiday giving; many of these books are hard or impossible to find

About this Event

Here’s your chance to find beautiful new Canadian books, just in time for holiday giving; many of these books are hard or impossible to find elsewhere. Canadian publishers submitted most of them this March to the Alcuin 2018 book design competition, but there are also winners from last year; now you have a chance to buy them for as little as 50% of list price.

You’ll find all kinds of books here: from children’s books to poetry, novels to cookbooks, heavily illustrated pictorial books from publishers like the National Gallery to graphic novels.

This year, once again, we’re having a live auction of select books, from 1 to 2 p.m. – the rest of the books will be sold by silent auction. Come at noon to look over the books and place your bids, and chat over coffee or tea and cookies with like-minded members and their friends.

The proceeds from this event help fund next year’s competition, as well as the several wonderful free events that are going to be part of it. Registration for the auction is required, although the event is free; we just need to know you’re coming, so that we can have a chair (and refreshments) for you. We accept cash, cheques, or credit cards.

How to get there: Any bus going to the UBC University Endowment Lands, University Boulevard; plenty of free parking

FREE AND OPEN TO EVERYONE – BRING YOUR FRIENDS
