us conductors

“DZEEEEOOOoo! Just as hard as it is to make a theremin sing so it is hard to pull off a novel like this. But Sean Michaels does it. Us Conductors bridges body and soul, science and art, and like theremin music, it’s of this world and magical at the same time.”
—Ismet Prcic, author of Shards

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

The Blue Heron is a one-of-a-kind bookstore where you are welcomed in by brilliant, warm-hearted, knowledgeable staff. You’ll leave with the exact book your mind and spirit seeks and return again and again. — Sheree Fitch

Lizard Cage

And the Winner is…The Lizard Cage by Karen Connelly

A very compelling argument by Elaine de Blicquy for The Lizard Cage won over the panelists for the 2011 Uxbridge Reads contest.

Included is an excerpt of Elaine’s argument which may lead you to the same conclusion the panelists reached…this is the book you need to read.

Uxbridge “deserves” this book – not as a punishment, not in an ‘instructive, pedantic’ …”you must learn” way—but we deserve it because we are a passionate, caring reading community.

We are a community who follows our doctors to Ghana, who invites Vietnamese “Boat” people to make this town their home and who jump to the cause of helping a local merchant assist with humanitarian relief in his native land of Afghanistan. Continue reading
