Event Details

Parking is available east of the building with both the paved and gravel lots available for use. As this event takes place in the evening, street parking is also available without a charge.

Upon entering the building you will be required to wear a mask and sanitize your hands at a station setup to the left of the lobby. The receptionist will then greet you to record your name and provide guidance for accessing the 3rd floor via the elevator. There will also be ushers in place to assist you and ensure the safety of all our guests.

Once you are on the 3rd floor, you will find the multipurpose room directly ahead of the elevator as you pass by the washroom. Here you will find socially distanced seating, a signature table, and also the opportunity to purchase the book. If you are attending with your social circle or family, please feel free to move seating closer together; if you require assistance please let one of the ushers or staff know.
