Winter Giller Prize Book Club

Wednesday, January 28, 7:00
Us Conductors by Sean Michaels – Giller Prize Winner

Register beginning on Tuesday, January 6, and pick up your book to get started reading!
“Michaels’ book is based on the life of Lev Termen, the Russian-born inventor of the Theremin, the most ethereal of musical instruments. As the narrative shifts countries and climates, from the glittery brightness of New York in the 1920s to the leaden cold of the Soviet Union under Stalin, the grace of Michaels’s style makes these times and places seem entirely new. He succeeds at one of the hardest things a writer can do: he makes music seem to sing from the pages of a novel.”
—Giller Prize Jury Citation
