Read this month’s chosen title and then come spend time with fellow book lovers discussing the book with a librarian. We meet at a new time, 11:00 am start, in the Willow Room of Cameron Recreation Centre.

Our selection for discussion in January is The Dancehall Years by Joan Haggerty. 

cover_DanceHall_Years

The Dancehall Years is an elegy to a coastal culture almost lost—island cottages with views of the Union Steamships in Howe Sound, the Japanese gardeners before WWII and the terrible internments, forgotten inlets and logging camps, long summer evenings in the dancehall, with its circle of white Corinthian columns, where ‘you're only allowed to dance inside the columns if you're in love or if you're spectacular dancers.’

The complex family saga begins one summer on Bowen Island and in Vancouver during the Depression and moves through Pearl Harbour, the evacuation of the Japanese and three generations into the 1980s.

The island’s dance hall, a well-known destination for both soldiers on leave and summer picnickers, becomes the emotional landmark for time passing and time remembered.

FREE but space is limited.  Please register online.   You can phone first to find out if copies are available from the book club set or you can reserve an individual copy online. Questions? Call 604-421-5454 or visit us in person at the Cameron Information Desk.
