Tickets now on sale for Words & Wine event

January 12, 2017

Tickets for Oakville Public Library’s (OPL) anticipated Words & Wine event are now on sale to the public. The event, formerly titled Books & Beer, will be held in the library’s Central Branch Auditorium at 7 p.m. on Feb. 9.

The annual event draws large crowds of enthusiastic readers – and wine connoisseurs – looking for new titles to pick up or to introduce to their book clubs.

At the two-hour long event, OPL staff will present 15 books with light, humorous, and charming stories – each perfectly representing the event’s theme of ‘Let there be Light.’

Speakers will provide the audience with a brief synopsis of their book and highlight any key details – such as interesting characters or plot twists – that make it stand out on the shelf.

Prior to the presentations, ticket holders are welcomed to a reception with a selection of wine and appetizers – an appealing characteristic of the event. This year, attendees can enjoy various wines from Megalomaniac winery, a local winery from Vineland, ON.

Tickets are expected to sell out very quickly – tickets to last year’s Book & Beer event sold out in less than one week.

Interested customers can purchase tickets to the event for $20 at any Oakville Public Library branch. Each ticket includes admittance to the event’s reception and entrance into a draw to win a copy of all titles presented.
