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 October we will explore The Conjoined by Jen Sookfong Lee

On a sunny May morning, social worker Jessica Campbell sorts through her mother's belongings after her recent funeral. In the basement, she makes a shocking discovery - two dead girls curled into the bottom of her mother's chest freezers. Moving between present and past, this riveting novel examines the myth of social heroism and traces the often-hidden fractures that divide our diverse cities.- Publisher
