BSM Book Club

For every shoe there’s a story!

If your established book club is looking for a new experience, consider holding one of your meetings at the Bata Shoe Museum. Your group will also receive a guided tour about the time period or themes that are relevant to your book.

Pick from a list of suggested titles (or suggest your own that you feel will fit with one of our exhibitions) and we’ll work with you to plan a daytime or evening meeting at the Museum for your book club.

Your book club’s session will last for 2 hours and includes the use of a private room for your book discussion followed by a half-hour tour in the relevant exhibition. The guide will be familiar with the book and will be able to make specific references to it during the tour. The cost is $20 per person for a maximum of 20 people.

For more information or to book a time, contact Sheila Knox, Head of Education at or call 416-979-7799 x 228.
