Globe & Mail/Ben McNally Books and Brunch October 4, 2015

This is Happy by Camilla Gibb
In this profoundly moving memoir, Camilla Gibb reveals the intensity of the grief that besieged her as the happiness of a longed for family shattered. Grief that lived in a potent mix with the solace that arose with the creation of another, most unexpected family. A family constituted by a small cast of resilient souls, adults broken in the way many of us are, united in love for a child. Reflecting on tangled moments of past sadness and joy, alienation and belonging, Gibb revisits her stories now in relation to the happy daughter who will inherit them, and she finds there new meaning and beauty.

Road Trip Rwanda by Will Ferguson
Hope lives in Africa. Twenty years after the genocide that left Rwanda in ruins, author Will Ferguson travels deep into the once-mysterious "Land of a Thousand Hills" with his friend and cohort Jean-Claude Munyezamu, a man who escaped Rwanda just months before the killings began. Funny, engaging, poignant, and at times heartbreaking, Road Trip Rwanda is the lively tale of two friends, the open road, and the hidden heart of a continent.

Please call (416) 361-0032 with your credit card information to reserve a ticket. (Jenni_Canuck)
