Book List for 2022

July 5th   Ainslie Gray and Phyllis Lill will present:    The Three Sisters Bar and Hotel by Katherine Govier.  This book is a sweeping and intimate, meticulously researched story of the Canadian West.   Many of us will know Katherine from her earlier days at Sans Souci and we hope she will join us in person or Zoom in.

July 19th   Brenda NcNeill will present:   Swimming with Horses by Oakland Ross.  This is a story of an unlikely friendship between a Canadian teenager and a South African girl which sparks a journey to untangle an unsolved murder.  Oakland will also join us, in person or by Zoom!

August 2nd   Irene Chambers and Donna Kovacs will present:  Northland by Porter Fox. This is a fascinating story about traversing the 4000 mile Canadian-American border by canoe, freighter, car and foot.  He blends stories of the region’s history with wonderfully descriptive accounts of his travels and experiences.

August 16th   Sharon Earle-Meadows and Nancy Westaway will present:   All the Light we Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.  This 2015 Pulitzer Prize winning novel is set in France during WW11 centering on a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths eventually cross.
