Free Public Lectures and Readings

There are a range of events at both the UBC Robson Square campus and the UBC Point Grey campus, and they’re free and open to everyone.

Robson Reading Series events host a dynamic selection of authors whose poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction expand our knowledge of literature and the world through distinct approaches to style, subject, and form. All these events are a combination of readings, audience-author conversations, book signings and mingling.

UBC Robson Square Public Lectures offer a range of public lecture series and events hosted by UBC and community groups.
