One Book Nova Scotia Event

For the second year in a row, a coalition of libraries, publishers and booksellers have gotten together to organize One Book Nova Scotia - a series of events designed to encourage us to share the experience of reading the same book at the same time.

This year's book is Fauna by Toronto writer Alissa York and the Patrick Power Library is pleased to be able to host a reading by the author:

PLACE: LIBRARY CLASSROOM (LI135)
DATE: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8
TIME: 10:30

We also have copies of the book available to borrow if you would like to join with other readers in the province as an active participant in One Book Nova Scotia.

The novel is getting lots of positive reviews across Canada:

Fauna is the sort of rare novel that can change the way you see your world. Its cast of misfits and dreamers is united by their visceral connection to the forgotten animals surviving in the green patches of our big cities. This book is beautiful, unusual and memorable. And Alissa York is a daring and original talent.” —Jim Lynch, author of Border Songs

“Layered with astonishing detail, with every location vividly evoked and every action a visceral experience.”
The Globe and Mail

“Lyrical. . . . Fauna is well crafted, morally serious and even noble in its sensitivity.”
Toronto Star

“An extraordinary novel. . . . daring and exceptional.”
Quill & Quire (starred review)

“A tender and beautiful novel.”
NOW (Toronto)

So please join us next Tuesday morning as Alissa York reads from and discusses her novel.  Everyone is welcome.
