Over the years Bryan Prince Bookseller has built a reputation on providing a platform for local, national and international writers and poets. We host in-store book launches and readings, including our Authors After Hours series. We also schedule author events around the city with community partners such as Gallery on the Bay, the Carnegie Gallery, Hamilton Public Library, McMaster University and more. The bookstore has been a member of the planning committees for both the gritLIT Festival and Telling Tales: Family Festival of Stories since their inceptions. We are delighted that the Hamilton Poetry Centre hosts their year-round guest poet series in the shop.
A highlight of our year is bringing the Bryan Prince Bookseller experience to the Writers at Woody Point Festival, which is held in Newfoundland each August.
In addition to the day-to-day running of the bookstore you can often find us hosting author events or supporting events of other community members.
Currently we have an active author event series, plus we are involved in these exciting on-going projects with community partners: Hamilton's Short Works Prize; Death: Something to Talk About: A Reading Initiative. Please visit their links to find out more.
