About

Georgian Bay Reads (GBR) brings together five local libraries to celebrate Canadian authors and communication between libraries in an event filled with lively discussion, good-natured competition, and an enthusiastic audience.

Each library chooses a defender and a book, in hopes of convincing fellow defenders and audience members of their books’ merit in a live debate. The winning defender brings home a trophy for his or her library.

The following libraries participate yearly in the event:

  • Clearview Public Library
  • Collingwood Public Library
  • Meaford Public Library
  • Springwater Public Library
  • Wasaga Beach Public Library

This year, the event is being held on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at the Leisure Time Club, 100 Minnesota Street in Collingwood. Please stay tuned for news about when tickets will be available!
