Since February was Black History Month, the Amherstview Branch’s book club read books based on the themes of black history and culture. Jennifer, who leads the book club, chose to read Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson, a great CanLit novel. It’s sci-fi and from 1998, so it could be considered a bit obscure. “Winner of several ‘best first novel’ awards, this novel weaves together elements of Afro-Caribbean culture, feminist science fiction, and magic realism,” says Jennifer.

“I See You is the highly anticipated page-turner by author Clare Mackintosh whose debut book I Let You Go caused quite a stir late last year,” says Marg Wood from the Napanee Branch. “It was hailed as the new Girl on the Train and proved to be extremely popular; in fact it is still in high demand. I just finished reading I See You and I predict that it will garner the same interest and be just as popular!”
