2021 GBR reading list announced
During the International Arts Education Week (May 24-30), the Georgian Bay Reads committee took pride in the daily announcements of the books and their defenders on social media. This week, we would like to publish these names, titles and sponsoring libraries so that you will have ample time to read these stories before the 12th annual Georgian Bay Reads event takes place as the highlight of Ontario Library Week taking place on Saturday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m.
For Clearview Public Library, Heart Berries by Terese Marie Mailhot will be defended by Kieran Rupke (pictured).
For Collingwood Public Library, Missing From the Village by Justine Ling will be defended by Suzanne McLean.
For Meaford Public Library, Bird Art Life by Kyo Maclear will be defended by Ashley Trusler.
For Springwater Public Library, The Pull of Stars by Emma Donaghue will be defended by Donna Kenwell.
And for Wasaga Beach Public Library, A Town Called Solace by Mary Lawson will be defended by Ali Elder.
Georgian Bay Reads will also be part of Culture Days, which is the largest collective public participation campaign undertaken by the arts and cultural community in Canada (from Sept. 24 to Oct. 24). To reserve your ticket to this free virtual event, please contact the Creemore Branch at 705-466-3011 to place your name on the Georgian Bay Reads reservation list.
Reading lists detailing the 60 books that have been involved in past battles are also available for your reading pleasure. All titles are available for check-out at Clearview Public Library. This summer might be a long one with the continuation of the lingering effects of COVID-19 but here at the library, we do have a wonderful collection of printed and visual materials to entertain, enrich and enlighten you.
