Breaking Barriers Foreshadow Event

101 Queen Street, tel: 819-562-4949

Bibliotheque Lennoxville Library welcomes the general public to its annual CANADA READS Foreshadow Event. This year, each of five participants (all avid Lennoxville readers!) will make the case for the CANADA READS selection with the greatest potential to change perspectives, challenge stereotypes and illuminate issues.

Each participant will make a fifteen-minute presentation in which they describe, analyze, and champion their assigned work. Members of the audience are invited to ask questions, take part in a brief discussion and vote for the work they find most compelling.

Refreshments will be served.

Presenters and Works:
Tim Belford: The Inconvenient Indian, by Thomas King
Shanna Bernier: When Everything Feels Like The Movies, by Raziel Reid
Tom Cavanagh: And the Birds Rained Down, by Jocelyne Saucier
Anne Ross: Ru by Kim Thúy
Kenneth Tomlin: Intolerable: A Memoir of Extremes, by Kamal Al-Solaylee.

The CBC CANADA READS debates will be held a week later, March 16 to 19, on CBC Radio.
