Preston Library Book Club

Preston Library Book Club

   This picture was taken when we were just getting ready to discuss "Through Black Spruce".  These people are such good readers that the double narrative and non-linear storyline did not bother them. In fact, the book rated 8.4 out of 10 - a very high rating.
   This is a library book club and the pretty lady with the flowers is the librarian who helped us get started.  Unfortunately, the library board has decided that we need to be run by volunteers, so Jennifer will not be with us in an official capacity.  We wanted to show our appreciation of her work on behalf of the book club and we said it with flowers.
  There was an interesting discussion about Joseph Boyden's Indigenous roots - or the lack thereof.  Personally, I think he represents the Indigenous community so well that I really don't care about his genealogy.

Since we are celebrating Canada Day, it is a good time to learn about the Indigenous people and celebrate their role in Canada.
      Happy Canada Day!
