Book Sale

We know that the Imagination book sale is always one of the most anticipated parts of the festival. We are pleased to announce that La Maison Anglaise, a vital partner of Imagination since its beginning, is once again the place to buy your books! This year again, 30% of the sales of the Imagination books will be given to the Morrin Centre and invested back into Imagination. Each event page (accessed by clicking on the event title below) also had an individual link to the appropriate book(s).

The books will be available at the Morrin Centre during the festival. You can also buy them, digitally or in person, at La Maison Anglaise through the button below.


For more information, click the event titles.
