I love Munro\'s so much, I almost have anxiety attacks when I get over to Victoria to visit them.

Upcoming events

Kenneth Oppel (Saturday, October 17 at 7pm)
Saturday, October 17th at 7:00 pm (doors at 6:30 pm), Free in store
The Nest - Kenneth Oppel’s most haunting story yet . . .
She was very blurry, not at all human looking. There were huge dark eyes, and a kind of mane made of light, and when she spoke, I couldn't see a mouth moving, but I felt her words, like a breeze against my face, and I understood her completely.
"We've come because of the baby," she said. "We've come to help."
In this beautiful, menacing novel, perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, an anxious boy becomes convinced that angels will save his sick baby brother. But these are creatures of a very different kind, and their plan for the baby has a twist. Layer by layer, he unravels the truth about his new friends as the time remaining to save his brother ticks down.
With evocative and disquieting illustrations by Caldecott Medal– and Governor General’s Award–winning artist Jon Klassen, The Nest is an unforgettable journey into one boy’s deepest insecurities and darkest fears.
