Would you rather have a new novel or a tray of delicious baked goods? Or, would you rather not have to make that impossible choice? You can have both of the best things in life at our giant book & bake sale!
We'll have good-quality gently used books of all genres for sale by donation, as well as an array of scrumptious baking, including vegan and gluten free options. This event is happening in conjunction with the Daniel McIntyre St. Matthews Community Association's annual rummage sale, so there will also be a parking lot full of treasure behind the building. You don't want to miss this!
All of the proceeds from the book & bake sale go toward supporting two volunteer-run organizations that provide services to people in Manitoba jails and prisons. The Manitoba Library Association's Prison Library Committee runs libraries in four provincial jails as well as offering writing workshops, author talks, and other programs. The Bar None Prison Rideshare Project provides free transportation to people looking to visit their friends or family members in out-of-town jails or prisons.
Come on down and eat/read to your little heart's desire and help out two community groups doing great and important work! Bring your friends! Invite your neighbours! We hope to see you there!
