Frequently Asked Questions
What happens at a Grimsby Author Series event?
Each regular season event usually features 2 authors that have recently published a book. Each author has about twenty minutes to talk about their work and give a reading, followed with a question-and-answer period with the audience. Each evening concludes with door prize draws and a chance to purchase a copy of the featured titles, and then haved it signed by the author. Wine from local Niagara wineries and light snacks or treats are served before the talks begin, allowing people a chance to mingle and talk.
