Ever asked yourself what it would be like to experience multiple books at one time? Saturday May 13th 2017 will allow just that and the possibilities of the experience are beyond endless.
I’m referring to The Bookshelf, a book fair led by the Writer’s Community of York Region, which will showcase the hidden gems and talent of 14 local authors who will share readings from a range of genres from Poetry to Fiction, from Children’s tales to Mystery. Starting at 10am and going until 1:30pm, people will be given the opportunity to go on storytelling tours, to hear the written words in their truly authentic nature, from the mind of their creator.
Some of our amazingly talented readers:

Bottom left: Donna Koffman, Mary Louise Jarvis, Wendel Messer, Val Tobin, and Cynthia St-Pierre
There is nothing like hearing from the written teller of tales as they weave through their work, doing their best to capture and intrigue the audience with the tools of their imagination and experiences. And the best part is, this is all a prelude to a larger world of story crafting.
Meet these writers and more inside the doors of The Bookshelf event. Think of these fourteen readers as the MC’s to a literary world of magic and wonder. Listen; laugh; cry; take a spin on a rollercoaster; mostly though, enjoy!
