Calling All Cyclists, Tea and Tolkien Fans – The Walking Read Online Auction Has Begun!


As part of The Walking Read gala event, organisers have been busy collection mountains of wonderful merchandise and prize packages from very, very generous donors to auction off at the event.

Because they know not everyone can make it to the event, they have put a few select items up for online auction, prior to the event. Among the bikes and original art, and other wonderful stuff, is a deluxe collector’s edition of The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún, a previously unpublished work by J.R.R. Tolkien, as well as a deluxe collector’s edition of The Children of Hurin.

What is The Walking Read?

The Walking Read is a gala event (food, drink entertainment, prizes, silent auction etc) celebrating CWILL BC’s 20th year. CWILL BC thought it would also be the perfect opportunity to raise money for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

date: Friday, June 14, 2013
time: 7 pm – 11 pm
location: Open Road Lexus, 5631 Parkwood Way Richmond, BC

The Walking Read is also a costume gala, open to the public – so come dressed as your favourite character from a kid’s book character for a chance to win some great prizes (or if you’re shy, just come dressed – we’d love to see you there!).  If you just need a bit of inspiration, have a read here…).
