This is an excellent opportunity to purchase books considered by Canadian publishers to be the most beautiful that they produced in 2011, at very reasonable prices, in an informal and congenial atmosphere - just in time for Christmas!

When: 11 AM — Saturday, November 10, 2012
Auction: 1 PM scheduled to conclude by 3 PM

Note the lunch is optional; anyone can attend the auction, scheduled to start at 1pm.
