Ready to read some great books this summer? You’re invited to be part of the St. Anne’s Book Club! 

Each Book Club gathering starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Skey Room of our Parish Hall (see photo to the right). Join us for a potluck meal and for conversation led by parishioner Marc Côté. Publisher of Cormorant Books

We’re talking about one book each session for 5 sessions throughout the summer, as outlined below. So far, we have discussed The Marrow Thieves, by Cherie Dimaline, and The Girl from the Paradise Ballroom, by Alison Love.

On Wednesday, August 2, we’ll discuss Abnormal Brain Sonnets, by David McFadden – a member of our St. Anne’s community and book club. The book is available online, or your local bookstore can order it for you. They are also available at the Toronto Public Library. We hope to order directly from the publisher and will soon have an update on cost.

 On Wednesday, August 16, we’ll discuss Silverwing, by Kenneth Oppel. There are 57 copies in the Toronto Public Library, and the book is available through almost all bookstores, as well as online. Also available in Kobo and Kindle formats.

On Wednesday, August 30, we’ll discuss Earth and High Heaven, the 1944 New York Times bestseller and winner of the Governor General’s Literary Award. There are 24 copies in the Toronto Public Library, and copies will also be readily available from Marc Côté as Publisher of Cormorant Books. Also available in Kobo and Kindle formats.

We will share a potluck supper and have great conversation. Please bring and food to share: salads, wine, juice, dessert.

We are meeting in the Skey Room, part of the St. Anne's Parish Hall, located at the west end of the church parking lot. (See picture above; enter by the brown door.)

All are welcome, and we hope you will enjoy reading with us.
