The Luminaries – 2014 Man-Booker Prize

luminaries “Sometimes – rarely – a novel arrives that is so good all you can do is shake your head in wonder. Brilliant in design, masterful in execution, and intensely pleasurable to inhabit, The Luminaries is a masterpiece, the work of a writer of apparently limitless range and talent.” —Peter Hobbs, author of In the Orchard, the Swallows


all my puny
Blue Heron books pic The unpretentious atmosphere of Blue Heron Books with its comfy chairs, wood shelving and creaky floors lends itself to a long slow, browsing session, but under that sleepy atmosphere vibrates a strong pulse. The store has a quaint, old-fashioned look with an up tempo vibe, because there is always something happening. The store is a hub for the community and a bastion of calm chaos where everyone is welcome, even the local dogs that drop by with their owners for a treat from the tin kept under the front counter. 62 Brock St. W., Uxbridge, Ontario. 905-852-4282

As a one-time publicist and a forever fan of books and reading, I can’t speak highly enough about Blue Heron Books and the community it rallies around visiting authors who, truly, are treated like celebrities. It’s no exaggeration to say that as someone who has attended her fair share of readings, Blue Heron’s are among the most magical and engaging. — Julie (BookMadam) Wilson
