The Stranger's ChildJoin Burnaby Public Library and the Health Initiative for Men for a librarian-led discussion about ‘The Stranger’s Child’ by Alan Hollinghurst.

“In the late summer of 1913, George Sawle brings his Cambridge schoolmate--a handsome, aristocratic young poet named Cecil Valance--to his family's modest home outside London for the weekend. George is enthralled by Cecil, and soon his sixteen-year-old sister, Daphne, is equally besotted by him. But what Cecil writes in Daphne's autograph album will change their and their families' lives forever: a poem that, after Cecil is killed in the Great War and his reputation burnished, will become a touchstone for a generation. The Stranger's Child is a tour de force: a masterful novel about the lingering power of desire, how the heart creates its own history, and how legends are made.” – Publisher

This program is intended for self-identified male participants. The group focuses on novels that are by queer authors or about LGBTQIA2S+ themes. Registration for this program opens on January 31.
