Weekend bibliophile events, October 5-6

Here are a few more book events coming this weekend, October 5-6, and if the weather is as nice as the forecasters promised, don't miss this occasion to have a long walk to the venues of these book events and check them out.

First of all, we hope the Alcuin Wayzgoose is on everybody's agenda. It is a great chance to meet the publishers and book artists, buy great books and memorabilia, and witness demonstrations of various book crafts such as bookbinding and papermarbling. The event is held at the Central Branch of the Vancouver Public Library on Georgia Street, from 10 am to 4 pm and admission is free.

Vancouver Book/Art Fair, presented by Project Space, runs October 5 and 6 at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The event features a series of screenings and talks about contemporary book issues. Additionally, check out the events of Artists' Books Weekend with shows and book launches.

Sunday night, Christina Johnson-Dean and Mother Tongue Publishing will launch the book The Life and Art of Edythe Hembroff-Schleicher at Railway Club on 579 Dunsmuir Street, from 5-8 pm. It is a great chance to meet the author and follow her beautifully illustrated talk.
