Read the One Book London's talking about
March 26, 2018
Western Libraries is pleased to be a community ambassador for London Public Library's One Book One London initiative. This year's title Brother, by David Chariandy, takes place in the Lawrence Park area of Toronto and deals with racism, poverty, identity and belonging. The book has been a hit with critics and readers alike. It was the winner of the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize, longlisted for the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize and for CBC Radio’s 2018 Canada Reads, a Globe and Mail Best Book and a Quill & Quire Best Book of 2017.
You can sign out a copy of the book at all Western Libraries locations or at the London Public Library (LPL) in various formats. LPL in conjunction with community partners, will have a number of free events and programs related to the book, culminating with an author visit on April 16 at 7 p.m. in Wolf Performance Hall. Everyone is welcome.
Tell us what you think about the book and share your #bookselfie by tweeting #1Book1Ldn to @westernulibs or join the conversation on LPL's Facebook group One Book One London.
