Book Bytes 2022 - Saskatchewan Book Award Winners

Book Bytes is a lunchtime, online summer reading series celebrating the work of Saskatchewan writers of diverse genres, identities, and experience levels. Events run every Wednesday lunch hour from 12 - 1 pm (Saskatchewan time) beginning on July 20, 2022, via Zoom.

This year we themed our readings which are as follows: Children’s Literature (July 20), Prose (July 27), Poetry (August 3), and Saskatchewan Book Award Winners Reading (August 10).


The Guild is fortunate to have the support of our major funders who make events like this possible: Sask Lotteries in proud partnership with SaskCulture, Canada Council for the Arts and the City of Regina. 


Please be mindful of your time zone as all events are in Saskatchewan time.
