Don't worry, this isn't a commitment to a monthly book club!

SEGD Vancouver in partnership with DesCan (Design Professionals of Canada) is holding a one-off night where we come together to geek out on our favourite design books amongst some beverages and snacks. You may have had a great holiday read, a book you've loved for years, or even one that you've been meaning to open for ages and now we're giving you the impetus to read up over the next month!

Books can cover the realm of art, design, architecture, urban planning, creativity - the list goes on! We would love if everyone could bring one or more of their favourite books that they've read at least a good chunk of (we will too), and be ready to chat about it with other people. Maybe you can even come home with someone else's book if they're open to a swap! We also accept the book-less that are just looking to learn about some new reads.

If you have books accumulating dust on your shelves, bring them along, we'll have a dedicated space for any books seeking new homes.

When: Tuesday, February 6th, 6 - 8 pm

Where: Massy Arts Society, 23 E Pender St, Vancouver, BC V6A 1S9

Admission: The event is free but we need to know numbers. Also, your registration will enter you in a raffle to win a special book on the night of the event!


  • Your own mug for a hot beverage
  • Books for show and tell
  • Any books you'd like to find a new home
  • This venue encourages the use of face masks, and we will have extra masks available!
