Many of our events have a $5-cover-or-buy-the-book policy. Where noted paying that cover gets you a $5 rebate on the book. Some events are free, while some have a larger cover. It is always listed on the individual event page.

If you are unable to attend an event but want a signed copy of a book, please contact - books [at] tinars [dot] ca - before the event. We are not able to guarantee signed copies after the event has taken place. We will charge the price of the book (tax incl.), plus shipping via Canada Post.
