Children’s Hospital Book Market Fundraiser Underway

By David Klassen

The 50th annual Book Market in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba begins today at St. Vital Centre.

Hundreds of titles from a wide selection of genres will be available for purchase, and is the longest running fundraiser for the foundation.

Organizers were preparing on Friday (above) for a busy weekend of bookworms making their way down to the mall. The Book Market runs until May 1 during normal mall hours.
