Join us on the evening of Monday May 9th for our triple header literary event featuring Camilla Gibb author of Sweetness in the Belly and editor of The Penguin Book of Memoir, an anthology of contemporary Canadian memoir, featuring excerpts from some of the country’s most respected writers including Wayson Choy, Michael Ondaatje, and Wayne Johnson. Camilla will be joined by new author, Suzanne Desrochers whose novel The Bride of New France Joseph Boyden says “is a gorgeous historical debut , in no small part because Suzanne Desrochers’s superb imagination brings this period of Canada’s story to vivid, vivid life.” and by award winning and Blue Heron favourite Susanna Kearsley in conversation with Sue Reynolds, Past-President of Writers’ Community of Durham Region.
What could be better than a beautiful spring evening, doors open, wine and cheese for the palate and literature for the soul. Bring your mom, your grandma, your daughter, your aunt, your sister and/or your girlfriends. A perfect gift for your MOM for Mother’s Day — a ticket and a book.
