One Book, One Province SK. Event with Author Candace Savage

Monday, March 2, 7:00

This March come together with your local library and book lovers across the province to read A Geography of Blood.  Meet Saskatchewan author Candace Savage on Monday, March 2 at 7:00 as she shares her book.

When Candace Savage and her partner buy a house in the town of Eastend, she has no idea what awaits her. At first she enjoys exploring the area around their new home, including the boyhood haunts of the celebrated American writer Wallace Stegner, the backroads of the Cypress Hills, the dinosaur skeletons at the T.Rex Discovery Centre, the fossils to be found in the dust-dry hills. She also revels in her encounters with the wild inhabitants of this mysterious land. But as she explores further, she uncovers a darker reality—a story of cruelty and survival set in the still-recent past—and finds that she must reassess the story she grew up with as the daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter of prairie homesteaders.

One Book, One Province, Saskatchewan aims to increase literacy and to create a reading culture by providing opportunities for residents to become more socially engaged in their community through a shared story.  Please join the Saskatchewan Library Association, Candace Savage, and Greystone Books in March 2020 as we read and discuss A Geography of Blood.

Listen to readings and enjoy the discussion.  Books for sale.  Everyone welcome!

Winter Book Club – Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center

Thursday, February 27, 7:00

Carrie Hanwell is a female firefighter in Texas, and she’s a total pro at handling other people’s emergencies. But when her ailing mother asks her move to Boston, Cassie suddenly has an emergency of her own. She finds a job at a tough, old-school Boston firehouse, but firemen aren’t exactly thrilled to have a “lady” on the crew–except for the infatuation-inspiring rookie. But she can’t think about that, because love is girly, and it’s not her thing. And her old captain had advised her never to date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping, and it means risking it all–the only job she’s ever loved, and the hero she’s worked like hell to become.

Register beginning on Saturday, February 1, and pick up your book to get started reading!  Enjoy a great discussion and prizes too!  We’ll see you there!
