World Book Day

March 5

World Book Day

Although there are a few days of the year that countries celebrate World Book Day, according to Days of the Year, we are celebrating on March 5th, 2021.   Did you know we have an amazing book store in Historic Downtown Cochrane?    Evexia Travel, now Evexia Travel & Books after owner Julia had to re-imagine her business. She paired up a love of travel with a love of books and now they are a boutique, full-service travel & book shop with a twist: now offering a wide & ever-growing selection of used books (some new), records & gifts!

Visit them on World Book Day to celebrate the wonderful power of books and the joy of reading.   Participate in their on-going THE SLOW DOWN PROJECT!

Whether you come in with your favourite book & just read for an hour, journal for an hour, or just sit with a cup of tea & think (maybe even nap?!). What you choose to do with this hour is up to you. There is no judgment – except if you ignore the below strings, lol.

Your phone is not welcome in this space during your hour. Leave it in the car, or in our designated phone jar.

You are to do this on your own. This is not a friend sport.

You must book your time slot to keep us both accountable for this sacred hour.

There is zero cost to you. At all. We are basically paying YOU (well – kinda) to do this!! Everyone that books & utilizes the SDP 4 times a month is entered into a monthly draw to win a prize to/from a local Cochrane business.
