Get Booksmacked at the Belfry Theatre

Event combines book reviews and drama in a theatrical venue

It’s like Siskel and Ebert on speed. The Greater Victoria Public Library and Belfry Theatre have teamed up for Booksmack, a raucous evening where five librarians will review as many books and DVDs as they can in one hour.

The free event takes place Monday, Oct. 1 at the Belfry, 1291 Gladstone Ave., at 7 p.m. in celebration of Canadian Library Month. Librarians will also be accepting checked-out books for return to save attendees a trip to the library. For more information, visit gvpl.ca or call 250-382-7241 ext. 224.
