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 November we will explore the memoir North of Normal by Cea Sunrise Person.
In the late 1960s, riding the crest of the counterculture movement, Cea’s family left a comfortable existence in California to live off the land in the Canadian wilderness. But unlike most commune dwellers of the time, the Persons weren’t trying to build a new society—they wanted to escape civilization altogether. Sex, drugs, and . . . bug stew? In the vein of The Glass Castle and Wild, Cea Sunrise Person’s compelling memoir of a childhood spent with her dysfunctional counter-culture family in the Canadian wilderness—a searing story of physical, emotional, and psychological survival. - Goodreads
