FROM PAGE TO STAGE

Join us for a series of free noon-hour presentations in the Carol Shields Auditorium at the Millennium Library. Each Friday session runs from 12:10 – 12:50 pm and is a great way to better connect with the story. Can't make it in person? No problem! Each talk is broadcast live and archived on the Winnipeg Public Library's facebook page.
