Just ‘Cause Valentine’s Day is over, it doesn’t mean February isn’t still fun at Books & Co

The dust has settled on another Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean Books & Co, Café Voltaire and ArtSpace don’t have some wonderful things planned for the rest of February!

This Friday, February 17 at 8:00 pm we’ve got Denis Strawsfogel in Café Voltaire.  Playing a mix of folk songs and classic tunes, Denis is sure to put on a fantastic show for this Friday Night Mic session!  As always, this event is free!

And, don’t forget that we’ve got a Spectacular Storytime Every Saturday Morning at 10:00 am! Our expert storytellers provide spice (and excellent scary, funny and weird voices) to classic and modern tales! So drop in with your youngsters and enjoy a coffee while they listen to stories and make crafts!

Books & Co has tickets for An Evening of Musical Comedy starring Dawn Boudreau & Guests and hosted by Carter Horie on Saturday, February 18 in ArtSpace.  Tickets are only $15.

February is Black History Month and Books & Co has tickets for Prince George’s Black History Month Celebrations!  On Saturday, February 18 at 7:00 pm enjoy an Evening of Song Out of Africa at the First Baptist Church.  Tickets are only $10! Or, on Monday, February 20 at 7:00 pm enjoy a Caribbean Cooking Demonstration (and probably some excellent samples of Caribbean food) at the First Baptist Church, tickets for this delicious event are only $12.  And we also have tickets (a mere $15 for adults, $7.50 for children) for the CNC Black History Month Main Event Celebrations! There will be education, entertainment, guest speakers and a lite meal!

Monday, February 20 is a busy day at Books & Co! Not only are we hosting NDP Leadership Candidate Peggy Nash at 11:30 am in Café Voltaire but another meeting of the Prince George Correspondents’ Club (that letter writing thing we do) is meeting in Café Voltaire at 6:30 pm that night!  Come out Monday morning to see Ms. Nash and ask her why she should be our next leader of the official opposition in Ottawa! And come back Monday night to write a letter to anybody you choose (perhaps to your Member of Parliament).

Red Cedar Readers’ Club resumes its fun questions and crafts meetings on Tuesday, February 21st at 6:30 pm in Café Voltaire.  Come out and chat with other young readers and get ready for the Red Cedar Battle of the Books later this year!

Did you know The Arrogant Worms are coming to ArtSpace on March 14! It’s only a few weeks away! This is going to be a fantastically hilarious show from Canada’s funniest band and you can get tickets for only $30 each. Tickets are going fast and it’s going to be a sold out crowd, so pick yours up TODAY!

Books & Co also has tickets to the Burns Lake Tragedy Fundraiser Dance happening at the Kinsmen Hall on Friday, February 24.  Things kick off at 8:00 pm. There will be live music by Sound Addiction, a silent auction and a late night snack, so get your dancing shoes on and support our neighbours!
