After Hours 2017

We are thrilled to announce a special “Canada 150 edition” of our popular After Hours @ The Library fundraiser. This year, we have invited 4 beloved Canadian writers to attend our fundraiser for an evening of conversation, food, drink and prizes, where attendees can get “up close and personal” with their favourite authors.

Join us on Friday, November 17th from 7:00 – 9:30pm as we welcome Gloria Ferris, Ian Hamilton, Donna-Marie Pye and Andrew Pyper to the Waterloo Public Library.

Guests can mingle over a glass of wine, indulge in delicious canapés from local restaurants and get social. Our panel of authors will be chatting with guests, signing books and answering questions in a relaxed atmosphere. This is your opportunity to ask all the burning questions. What is the most difficult thing about writing? How long does it take to write a book? What is your favourite breakfast food?

Be sure to attend this year’s After Hours @ The Library fundraiser for a night you won’t soon forget.

Tickets are $50 (includes 1 drink ticket and hors d’oeuvres)

Tickets go on sale Monday, October 2nd both online and at all 3 WPL locations.

Funds raised go towards expanding our current Adult and Children’s Program offerings.
