Used Book Sale Fundrasier - Thank you!

                                

Our latest used book sale funderaiser was held at the Forks Market from May 23 to May 25. We were able to find new homes for lots of great books, and make a little money in the process.

Thanks so much to our army of volunteers who helped sort the books, move the books to and from the Forks, and help sell them over the weekend. Thanks to the Forks again for their generous sponsorship, and allowing us to use the space.

Don't despair though if you missed us. We still have plenty of great books, and will get more, by the time of our next sale: September 5 to 7.

And if you have books you would like to donate, please give us a call at 204-927-7323, or email us at info@thinairwininpeg.ca.

Festival Director Charlene Diehl led the conversation afterward, as they shared their views on poetry and it's place in the world. A wonderful night all around!
