We have just discovered an error in the newspaper this morning saying that Ian Rankin would be at our store at 7:00 tonight. We are very excited to be hosting a SOLD OUT event at the Da Vinci Centre at 7:30.
We are sorry for any confusion the TC may have caused.
Just a reminder to ticket-holders! Our event season has just been an absolute flurry of activity, but we’re capping our season with an excellent author! That’s right, we have Ian Rankin coming to Victoria for an event on Thursday, November 28th at 7:30 pm at the DaVinci Centre – 195 Bay St.
Ian will be talking about his Inspector Rebus series of books and the latest instalment in that series, titled Saints of the Shadow Bible (available now at Bolen Books).
Tickets have now sold out!
Though there’s no snow on the ground yet, the nip in the air is telling us that that winter is coming! With winter comes the holiday season, and with the holiday season comes a change to our store hours for the next little while! Our hours of operation through the holiday season are now:
8:30AM to 10:00PM, Monday to Saturday
10:00AM to 9:00PM, Sunday
To remind everyone, we have two more excellent events this week! On Monday, November 18, at 7:00 pm Lawrence Hill will be joining us to talk about his latest book, part of this year’s CBC Massey Lectures, titled Blood: The Stuff of Life.
And on Tuesday, November 19, at 7:00 pm, TV-host and travel writer, Robin Esrock will be stopping by to talk about his new book, titled The Great Canadian Bucket List, an primer on what our own country has to offer by way of excellent destinations and adventures!
These events should be fascinating and fun! And, of course, both books are available now at Bolen Books!
This is a reminder that we have Chris Hadfield in the store on Saturday, November 16th at 2:00 pm to sign copies of his book An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth. Please note the following guidelines in place for the event:

No other memorabilia will be signed.

We strongly recommend that people arrive early or purchase their books beforehand.
Our event season is about to hit the halfway point, so to celebrate, we have a two-for-one evening for you! A couple of great historical fiction authors will be stopping by the store to talk about their latest novels! That’s right, author Roberta Rich will be discussing her follow-up to the Midwife of Venice, titled The Harem Midwife. Additionally, we have Mary Novik to discuss her latest, titled Muse, her latest novel since Conceit, a Globe And Mail Best Book. Of course, Bolen’s has both their books on sale now! And you can meet the authors this Wednesday, November 13th at 7:00pm at Bolen Books.
Just a reminder folks, we have one of our favourite authors stopping by the store! That’s right, Irish Country author Patrick Taylor will be joining us on Tuesday, November 5, at 7:00 pm.
