This calendar is reserved for non-commercial local community events. What does that mean? Your event must be free or of nominal cost, available to anyone (although adult-only events are fine), and not for profit. (We do make exceptions for artists showing their work who would profit from any sales made and musicians hosting small-scale concerts). Not sure if your event fits? Drop us a line at [email protected] to check, or go ahead and submit anyhow – submissions are moderated and we will approve yours if it fits our criteria. Thanks for helping make Muskoka a vibrant community!

Muskoka Authors Association in Conjunction with Cottage Country Writers Presents Tall Pine Tales 2023

Muskoka Authors Association and Cottage Country Writers invites the community to the 10th Annual TALL PINE TALES, two exciting evenings of public readings featuring talented published and novice writers from Muskoka. The brainchild of Melody Richardson, the events continue to be planned and organized to keep alive her dream of supporting and promoting local writers. From historic fiction to poetry, humourous personal accounts to suspense-filled short stories and excerpts from novels, attendees will enjoy jam-packed evenings of entertainment. Refreshments will be served.

Entry is by donation with proceeds supporting the purchase of books and supplies for the host libraries.

This year’s events kicked off at Baysville Public Library (10 University Street) on Wednesday, July 12, 7 pm with a selection of readings from eight writers with Mistress of Ceremonies, Author, Sheridan Rondeau.

Then on Saturday, August 12, at 11 am, novelist and poet, David Bruce Patterson will MC Part two of Tall Pine Tales 2023 at Bracebridge Public Library (94 Manitoba Street) with readings by eight different writers.
