Countdown to Our Annual Book Auction

Our annual book auction is just a few days away! We have extended the deadline for signing up for our annual luncheon and auction: there are still some seats available, if you're able to join us.

This event is always really fun; you have a chance to acquire books submitted to our competition, all lovely and interesting, and many hard to find - for yourself, or for gifts.  
A reminder; our auction contains the books that were entered in the competition from the publishing year 2011, but it ALSO contains the winning books from the publishing year 2010, and a good number in duplicate. These books are featured in depth in our awards catalog here, but I also thought I should showcase a few of those books here on the blog.

It's at the University Golf Club, close to transit, and with lots of free parking. The lunch is $18 per person (we currently have 10 spaces available for lunch); or you can just come to the auction. But do please let us know so that we can be sure there's a chair for you. 

Please contact us by email before Thursday November 8th if you're planning to attend.
