Julie, Readers’ Services Coordinator for the County of Lennox & Addington Libraries, recently enjoyed a new thriller that looks at what would happen if a large scale blackout occurred.

“In these dog days of summer brown outs are all too common and even the occasional blackout,” says Julie. “In August of 2003, on a hot summer day the power went out across Ontario and much of the Eastern Seaboard affecting the population from hours to days in some places. Imagine if a blackout happened for Europe in the dead of winter -- Marc Elsberg’s book Blackout does just this.”
