Events? - Yes, there are many! - Come in February and snag a front-row seat at readings and workshops by celebrated authors at the island's very own Literary Festival. On Canada Day (July 1st) catch the North Island Jamboree, a wonderful example of "old-time" Galiano. During the BC Day long-weekend (first weekend of August ), many galleries and private homes on Galiano host a special Art Show which features new work made especially for this event. And as well, our Island’s wonderful annual  Fiesta is on that first Saturday in August, the Wine Festival is mid-August and the celebrated Blackberry Festival is always the first Saturday in October, during Canada's Thanksgiving celebrations.

Make a Movie! - Budding filmmakers flock to our Island's award-winning Gulf Islands Film & TV School, which offers one- and two-week programs to students of all ages. From June through September, everyone can enjoy free Saturday screenings of student films each week.

Let Them Eat Dirt, saving your child from an oversanitized world by Brett Finlay

Fascinating research and presentation by Brett Finlay on Saturday March 25th, at 3 pm at the Library.

Brett will be a familiar face/name to many as he is a part-timer with several properties here on Galiano Island. Brett is often interviewed/quoted on CBC radio. Another presentation  in the Library's Learning with Locals series.

His recent book “Let them eat dirt” directly addresses recent research in developing and maintaining children’s health: http://letthemeatdirt.com/

See http://finlaylab.msl.ubc.ca/about/ for more information about Brett and his credentials.

This reading is partnered by Galiano Island Library, Galiano Health Centre, and Galiano Island Books.
