Blind Date with a Book – Black History Month

The Dr. John Archer Library & Archives invites students, staff and faculty to participate in the 2024 “Blind Date with a Book” contest, which runs from January 22nd to February 21st and aims to pair a reader with their perfect book.

Visit the display in the Archer Library with wrapped books (fiction, novels, poetry, plays and non-fiction) about Black history and by Black authors. Pick your “blind date” and sign it out at the Help Desk. Participants can enter to win one of three prize packs of books generously donated by the University of Regina Press.

On February 22nd, 2024, the author Peace Akintade-Oluwagbeye will speak at the Archer Library and during this event the winners of the contest will be announced.
