Book Bytes brings audiences readings by an eclectic mix of authors and storytellers over the lunch hour. The authors come from a variety of genres including poetry, children’s literature, non-fiction and fiction genres and grapple with a variety of topics both humorous and serious, poignant and inspiring. Whether they are just emerging or already well-established, these authors gather from across Saskatchewan to be on hand each Wednesday to read selections of their work. Register once for the whole series, or tune into the SWG Facebook page beginning at noon each week from July 9 to August 19. Please note there is no event on July 29.
