Dufferin Reads: One Book 

One County Finale

Many of you have enjoyed the recent Authors in the Hills of Mulmur event and now we are gearing up for yet another amazing literary afternoon on Sunday, September 15th with Ian Hamilton. Ian will be speaking about his latest book, Fate, which is a new series and I’m sure he will touch on his newest title in the Ava Lee series, the Mountain Master of Sha Tin, which was released last month. I really enjoyed both.

The event is close to home, at Grace Tipling Hall; refreshments will be served, all for a cost of $10.00. Come and join us for this special event!!

TD Summer Reading Finale

What an amazing turnout for our finale for both the Children’ and the Teens windup of events and the reading challenges for this summer. We have an amazing number of young readers in our community reading a total of 2185 books. The Festival was a great way to celebrate their achievements. Approximately 150 -175 children and adults were present throughout the day… enjoying games, snacks, popcorn, a free book and certificate for each participant and of course music with Troup Adore and face painting with Soyhla. Jade and Brittany with their student assistants, Jill and Megan organized this very successful event
