UBC Bookstore and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre have made the difficult decision to conclude the Robson Reading Series at the end of March 2013. This step was taken in light of the 2012 closure of UBC Library’s Robson Square branch, and the coming closure of the UBC Bookstore at Robson Square. More information is available here.
For more than 10 years, the Robson Reading Series has helped the University share knowledge and engage communities at UBC and beyond. The series featured seasoned and debut writers reading from their works in various genres, and gave them a platform to discuss their works with the audience in a warm and welcoming environment – indeed, the motto has been “live literature and cozy conversation.” UBC Bookstore and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre remain committed to providing books by Canadian authors to the community. In addition, readings remain scheduled until the end of March –visit the Robson Reading Series for more information.
