Author Frances Greenslade at the Williams Lake Branch
Join us for an exciting conversation with the author of Shelter, a great new piece of Canadian fiction set in the Cariboo! Frances Greenslade's new novel, Shelter, is the story of two sisters, Maggie and Jenny, and their quest to find out what happened to their mother who left them to billet in Williams Lake, a small town in British Columbia, and never came back. Set in the 1960s and 70s in the wilds of the Chilcotin, where it's still possible to lose yourself, the novel explores the attachment we have to our mothers, and the expectation we hold that they will always be our mothers, and nothing more. Donations will be accepted for The Potato House.

Author Vivien Lougheed at the Williams Lake Branch
Come out on October 27 for a fascinating conversation with author Vivien Lougheed, the author of Sidetracked. In Sidetracked: The Struggle for BC's Fossils Lougheed tells the fascinating tale of the Monroe Dinosaur Trackway's discovery in Kakwa Provincial Park. In telling the tale, she weaves in stories of other major fossil finds in B.C. and across North America, many of which demonstrate how egos, turf wars, and a lack of resources diminish the science of paleontology.

Author of "Campie" at the Quesnel Branch

The Quesnel Library is having an author reading by Barbara Stewart, who will be reading from her new book “Campie”, which depicts a view from the bottom of the oil barrel into work-camp culture. Campie is an entertaining, compelling account of how an ordinary person survives when things fall apart and there’s no “eat pray love” holiday to put them back together.” Heritage House Publishing, Victoria B.C.
