Milner Book Club
Location: Board Room, 3rd Floor

Join fellow readers the last Friday of every month, 12 noon, for our lively discussion about books, movies, culture, current events and anything else that pops up for discussion. Lots of fun and everyone welcome.

For the September 26th meeting, things take a turn for the odd with our first book about an eccentric family coming together, Miriam Toews' The Flying Troutmans. We'll keep the strangeness going with a Victorian true crime account, Kate Summerscale's The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher.

For free reading copies and more information, please call Diego at 780-496-7000 or send an e-mail to: dibarra@epl.ca (DiegoIbarra)
