A new monthly street event that endeavours to be Art Crawl for the literary set is happening in Hamilton this weekend.
Hamilton Book Crawl, a free street event celebrating local literature and the authors behind it, will be hitting Concession Street this Saturday, November 20th from 10 am to 1 pm.
To my Hamilton pals, please come out and see me at the November Hamilton Book Crawl this Saturday, Nov 20, on Concession Street from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm! I’ll be in front of Tim Hortons.

This is only the second time Book Crawl will be held in the community, the first being last month for a pilot run along Ottawa Street North.
Thankfully, the event was enough of a success to bring it back again and again, with Hamilton Book Crawl now scheduled for the third Saturday of every month from 10 am to 1 pm going forward.
At the event, locals can meet a range of Hamilton’s authors working in various mediums and genres, buy copies of their work, and explore all of the shops and food spots that the Concession Street strip has to offer.
Best of all, like Art Crawl, attendance is free; just show up and explore!
Hamilton’s second-ever Book Crawl takes place along Concession Street this Saturday, November 20th from 10 am to 1 pm. Read more here.
