Calling all passionate summer reading page turners

Once again summer is upon us and it’s time to put your feet up and read a good book.

Once again summer is upon us and it’s time to put your feet up and read a good book.

Reading can inspire us, inform us, relax us or indulge in our fantasies. We read for many reasons but discussing what we read can open up new ways of seeing our world, others and ourselves.

The Kootenay Book Weekend has a great selection for you to read this summer and provides the format to join in for some stimulating discussion and fun.

The books up for discussion this year are: The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas, The Help by Kathryn Stockett, Mao’s Last Dancer by Li Cunxin and two selections by Ruth Ozeki, My Year of Meats and All Over Creation.

Ruth Ozeki, an award winning film maker and novelist, is the guest author in attendance this year. She will join the weekend in the book discussions of her novels as well as give a talk that is also open to the public.

The books are guaranteed to stimulate thought and discussion in this friendly, informal event.

So get reading and come join us September 23 to 25 at the Best Western on Baker Street in Nelson. For more information call Victoria at 250-352-6197, email kbw@kootenaybookweekend.ca or visit the website at kootenaybookweekend.ca
