The Book Club alternates between fiction and non-fiction and concentrates on Canadian books. Discussion usually focuses on spiritual, moral or ethical issues raised in the book, and their relevance to contemporary political or social issues. We welcome anyone who has read the book being discussed.
We meet on the first Tuesday of the month at 1:30 p.m. via Zoom, using a computer, tablet or iPad, or you can join by phone. You can join via Garnet’s Zoom or phone in to 1 647 374 4685, enter meeting ID 282 232 9837 # #
On November 2 we will discuss Five Little Indians by Michelle Good.
This novel tells the story of five Indigenous children who meet at a remote, church-run residential school and follows their lives after they are released seven years later and make their way to Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. (There is a long list at the library for this although it is readily available as an e-book. If you want to buy a copy Margaret Howard has offered to get it for us at her discounted price of $11. Contact her before the end of June if you wish a copy.) You can read more about the book and its reviews on Goodreads.
