Scotiabank Giller Light Bash
November 7, 2016 @ 7:00 pm$3535
Begun as a house party by a group of friends 15 years ago, the Scotiabank Giller Light Bash has grown to be a full-scale event, thanks to a dedicated committee of volunteers from the publishing industry. Each year, 500 people support literacy and celebrate Canadian literature at this party taking place the same night as the Scotiabank Giller Prize Gala.
We are proud to celebrate this year’s Scotiabank Giller Light Bash in the cultural hub of Regent Park at Daniels Spectrum, an Artscape site. The 15th annual Scotiabank Giller Light Bash promises to be the best party of the year! Rub shoulders with publishers and authors, watch the live broadcast of the Giller Prize Awards, catch-up with colleagues and friends, and bid on some amazing raffle prizes!
This event is not to be missed! Not only does it support a great cause, but often guests from the formal awards ceremony drop by for a post-Gala cocktail, including authors Margaret Atwood, Joseph Boyden and Wayson Choy; CBC host Shelagh Rogers; and singer Chantal Kreviazuk
