It may not be a leap year but we took the leap and planned a BOOKS & BEER in the middle of winter! In partnership with TRESTLE BREWING we are presenting FRANK WOLF, author of Lines On A Map – Unparalleled Adventures in Modern Exploration.

PLEASE SUPPORT THIS EVENT and join us for dinner & an evening reading! The reading will take place on Tuesday 26 February from 7 - 9pm. Dinner reservations at 5:30.

Your $40 ticket includes a copy of the book, a tasting flight of beer or glass of house wine, and an evening of literary and adventurous entertainment.

FRANK WOLF will share stories from his new book Lines on a Map - Unparalleled Adventures in Modern Exploration. From the shores of Georgian Bay to the high Arctic, this funny and engaging presentation will give you an intimate glimpse into the world of a lifelong adventurer. The evening will feature a reading by Frank and Q & A discussion.

Frank Wolf is a Canadian adventurer, filmmaker, writer and environmentalist. He is known for books, films, and feature magazine articles that document wilderness expeditions around the world, with a focus on the Canadian North. His expeditions include being the first to canoe across Canada in one season and cycling 2,000 km in winter on the Yukon River from Dawson to Nome. In 2012 he was named one of Canada's Top Ten Adventurers by Explore Magazine, and in 2015 he was named One of Canada's Top 100 Explorers by Canadian Geographic Magazine.

To make a reservation for dinner seating from 5:30pm-6:45pm, call 705-751-9108. The reading and Q&A will take place from 7 - 9pm.

Please support this winter Books & Beer and enjoy a fun and informative evening out – be an adventurer!

NEW AND NOTABLE

It is a quiet time of year in the book business – but one of my favourite novels of 2018 is now out in paperback – Thisbe Nissen’s Our Lady of the Prairie is the absolutely wonderful story of a woman who risks it all for a new love. Perfectly plotted and beautifully written – loss, love, motherhood, marriage – great book!
