Cameron Branch Book Club is back for another round! Join us for a librarian-led discussion on Medicine Walk by Richard Wagamese.
"Tells the universal story of a father/son struggle in a fresh, utterly memorable way, set in dramatic landscape of the BC Interior. Franklin Starlight is called to visit his father, Eldon. He's 16 years old and has had the most fleeting of relationships with the man. The rare moments they've shared haunt and trouble Frank, but he answers the call, a son's duty to a father. He finds Eldon decimated after years of drinking, dying of liver failure. Eldon asks his son to take him into the mountains, so he may be buried in the traditional Ojibway manner."
Read the novel and come to the library to discuss it with other book lovers. Registration opens September 16. After registering, you can come to the Cameron information desk to pick up a copy of the book.
This program is free, but seating is limited. Register online or call 604-421-5454 for more information. The Book Club will take place in the Willow Room in the Cameron Recreation Centre, but participants can meet in the lobby just outside the Cameron Branch.
