Well. It really is July, though you’d never actually know it. Here are some fantastic events to keep your mind off of the Fall-like Summer we’ve been “enjoying!”
You’ve been waiting so patiently friends and finally that time is upon us! Café Scientifique returns to Café Voltaire tonight, Wednesday July 13th at 7:30pm! Entitled Educating the Next Generation of Physicians this free event, featuring Dr. David Snadden – Vice Provost of Medicine at UNBC and Regional Associate Dean of Northern BC at UBC – will be an open forum informing you of the direction the UBC Faculty of Medicine would like to travel and, in turn, asking you to share your opinions!
This Friday, July 15th, we have Dana-Marie Battaflia and her band on the Café Voltaire stage. If that wasn’t awesome enough, Markus Michelucci and his band Sound Refuge will be joining them! Please stop by for this absolutely free meeting of musical minds – it’s going to be an awesome, exciting event!
We have another author coming in for a visit on Saturday July 16th! Author of the popular thriller Dead Witness, Joylene Newell Butler will be visiting Books & Co. from 3pm until 6pm for the launch of her new book Broken But Not Dead, a novel about a woman who must find the strength to confront a deranged stalker and all that he stands for in order to ensure her daughter’s safety. Please come down and say hello to Ms. Butler – she would love to chat literature with you!
Looking for something fabulous to do on Thursday July 21st? Look no further – The June Bugs, group of five women “whose singing voices blend like butter in two, three, four and five part harmonies. From upbeat gospels and saucy bluegrass to traditional folk and contemplative originals, their music reflects a shared passion for the pure, heart-piercing magic of acoustic music and the marvel of well-blended vocal harmonies.” They’re going to rock the Artspace stage starting at 8pm! Tickets are available now for $12 in advance and $15 at the door. See you there!
And!? Because we love you so much – Books & Co. is excited to announce the incarnation of a brand new book club! The Nitty-Gritty Non-Fiction Book Club, brainchild of Bookies Erin and Asia, is as it sounds: a study of sometimes controversial, but always interesting non-fiction. This club will be studying some of the best non-fiction to hit our shelves, starting with Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals (available in the shop now for $16.99). The inaugural meeting will take place on Sunday August 28th from 3pm until 5pm in Café Voltaire. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact us via our handy-dandy Facebook page, through 140 fantastic characters (or less) on Twitter, telephonically ((250) 563-6637), or just stop on by!
That’s it for this week, folks! Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook (we love your feedback), Twitter (140 characters or less) and on our fantastic homepage!
Have a great week!
