It's one incredible night of bookish gift shopping!

Independent booksellers and bookish vendors will be on hand with incredible book-related wares for sale. Enjoy music, light refreshments, and snacks while you find wonderful wordy gifts for the book lovers on your list. (Also sample our special Literary Cocktail!)

Looking for book gifts, but not sure what to buy? Our Reading Enthusiasts will help you find the right book for everyone on your list.

Drop by Santa's Word Shop to take home personalized poems by our 2016 Author in Residence, and Calgary's 2016-2018 Poet Laureate Micheline Maylor, and our writer Lee Kvern (our 2015 Author in Residence).

Please bring a non-perishable item for the Calgary Food Bank.
