Buying a ticket for the Giller Light Bash is a great way to support literacy. Who said good causes had to be dull?

Thanks to a dedicated committee of volunteers from Halifax Public Libraries, T4G Kick, National Public Relations, and Frontier College, this event continues to grow. Located at the prestigious Atlantica Hotel, the 6th annual Scotiabank Giller Light Bash in Halifax will host passionate readers, Frontier College alumni, local literary celebrities and members of the community to watch the live CBC broadcast of the 2017 Giller Prize winner. Join in the excitement!

Our theme this year is Film Noir! Feel free to wear something reminiscent of your favourite femme fatale or hard boiled detective. Of course, dressing like the modern-day you is good too.

Free parking available at the Atlantica Hotel.
