Saturday’s Georgian Bay Reads was another huge success. Over 200 spectators filled the seats of the historic Meaford Hall in a friendly literary battle to decide on which Canadian Book should Georgian Bay residents read above all of the others in the competition.
In a nail biting split decision vote Collingwood Library’s representative Julie LeBlanc the host of Georgian Bay Life on Rogers TV defending Robertson Davies The Manticore was the nights overall winner!
A fine job however done by all five libraries and their defenders which included…
