Free Event! Free Parking! Full Accessibility!

Building on the success and excitement of the past two years, The Writers’ Community of Durham Region is putting together another great event for authors, readers and holiday shoppers this fall.
The Durham College, Centre For Food/Bistro 67 at 1604 Champlain Avenue, Whitby, is the perfect place to showcase the talented offerings of GTA and Durham Region authors.

We know it’s hard to think about Christmas sales and marketing when summer is just ending, but book your table now, so you don’t miss this fantastic event.
