NEWSLETTER FALL 2016

Kootenay Book Weekend September 16, 17, 18,  2016!

The 2016 Kootenay Book Weekend was an amazing success judging by the great discussions, frequent laughter, delighted game and raffle winners, and lucky participants who took home the Rainy Day Gift Basket and a book bag overflowing with 8 years of Canada Reads winners! Michael Christie was a charming guest author who shared his tale of love, mental illness, racial bias, and skateboarding. A delightful Canadian author.

 

For the 14th Annual KBW, September 22, 23 & 24, 2017, the Committee, has invited another new Canadian writer, Elinor Florence, as our guest author. Elinor has written her first historical novel, Bird's Eye View, which attained The Globe & Mail's AND The Toronto Star's bestseller list in 2016!

Rose Jolliffe is an idealistic young woman living on a farm with her family in Saskatchewan. After Canada declares war against Germany in World War II, she joins the British Women’s Auxiliary Air Force as an aerial photographic interpreter. Working with intelligence officers at RAF Medmenham in England, Rose spies on the enemy from the sky, watching the war unfold through her magnifying glass. What she sees through her magnifying glass will change the course of history -- and her own life --   in ways she never imagined.                       
                      Please visit Elinor's website for fascinatingbackground information about Elinor and her new novel.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

 

A charming debut...You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll feel new sympathy for the curmudgeons in your life.

 

 

 

The Girl Who Wrote in Silk  by Kelly Estes

 

Every inch of the sleeve was intricately embroidered with richly coloured threads, creating pictures as detailed as it they were paintings. Inara knew nothing oftextiles sewing, but even she could tell this sleeve was not merely a piece of clothing, but a work of art.
