We have an exciting program for you this year including a lively opening night on Friday with entertainment, wine and canapes. On Saturday and Sunday, in partnership with the library, we have a full program designed for all tastes so there is bound to be something scintillating for your senses. Panel discussions; authors talks; interviews; time to mingle, chat, buy books, eat, drink, and generally have a good time.
