The Book Club tends to focus in on Canadian writers or texts that have a Canadian connection.
However, there are exceptions. For example, on December 4, 2012, we will be discussing The Sense of Ending by well-known British writer Julian Barnes. In addition, we sometimes do a book in French or a translation of a French book but the discussion takes place in English.
The meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month at the Morrin Centre from 6-8 pm.
We are looking forward to reading and reflecting with you on the books chosen for the 2012-2013 season. New members are welcome.
