Russell Books is passionate about our culturally rich, talented, and unique community. We are an active part of the literary and cultural sphere of the city, and events make up a very special aspect of what we do. We host events and author readings and provide book fairs to many schools in Victoria. Our events welcome authors and artists to partner with local businesses, creating a diverse and collaborative environment for our community. 

We post all upcoming events in our e-newsletter, on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds, and on our website. If you are interested in our events program or how to become involved, please email us at: events@russellbooks.com. Follow us on any of our social media platforms or sign up for our e-newsletter to get the latest up-to-date information on upcoming events and for more store information.

Hope to see you at our next event!

The Tallest Tower

We’re Moving!

We are thrilled to officially announce that we are moving to a BIGGER and BETTER space! Our new home will be directly across the street at 747 Fort Street (the old Staples building). Opening in Fall 2019 it will offer more space, a simplified layout and will be much more accessible, with an elevator and escalator to the lower floor, while still offering the same Russell Books feel and lots and lots of books!

Community Support

For over 28 years, Russell Books has proudly encouraged reading enthusiasts throughout the Greater Victoria community. We inspire a passion for reading and literacy through participation in community events, and provide ongoing support and partnership with groups and organizations in the book world and beyond.
