Having a Bash
The Cochrane Public Library is no stranger to hosting large events. With the massive success of our Medieval Day, the Library knew that it was capable of putting on big programs for the community, even with only 5000 sq. feet to work with! So, when the opportunity came around to apply to be the host for the 2017 Book Bash Canadian Literature Festival, we knew we were up to the challenge! From conception to completion, we will discuss the insa nd outs of plannign large events including: writing a winning grant application, staying organized (and sane!) during the planning process, how to book Fred Penner, and post-event evaluation.
