Break out of your reading rut and join us for a book discussion circle with a new book each month. We will explore new fiction and non-fiction in a friendly atmosphere led by our McGill librarians.

In February we will explore the non-fiction title, No is Not Enough by Naomi Klein.

In No is Not Enough: Resisting the new shock politics and winning the world we need, Klein embraces a lively conversation with the reader to expose the forces behind Trump's success and explain why he is not an aberration but the product of our time--Reality TV branding, celebrity obsession and CEO-worship, Vegas and Guantanamo, fake news and vulture bankers all rolled into one. And she shares a bold vision, a clear-eyed perspective on how to break the spell of his shock tactics, counter the rising chaos and divisiveness at home and abroad, and win the world we need. - Publisher

This program is free, but space is limited. Please register in person at McGill Branch or by calling 604-299-8955. Registration for this month's discussion opens on January 30. Once registered, bring your library card to McGill Branch to pick up a copy of the book. Participants are asked to complete the book in advance of the event.
