Happy Thanksgiving! Fall and reading seem to go hand in hand, what with students and teachers buckling down, book prize announcements dominating the cultural news, and longer, cooler evenings encouraging curling up indoors. (It can be no accident that Canada’s most famous literary character, Anne of Green Gables, once said, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”)
After kicking off our programming year with a delightful visit from Oscar Malan of the Kingston Indie bookstore Novel Idea, Editors Kingston is continuing the celebration of reading at its October gathering with the theme “Reading into Fall.”
We’ll invite you to tell about a favourite book you read over the past year, and share something you learned from it. If you like, bring two books: one a pleasure read and one an editing- or business-related read. If you can, bring the actual book(s) for show and tell!
Join us on our usual second Wednesday of the month, October 10, at the usual place and time: Ongwanada Resource Centre, 191 Portsmouth Avenue, at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30. Free for Editors Canada members; $5 fee for visitors (first meeting free).
You’ll come away with a promising list of recommended reads and a treasure trove of wisdom from your colleagues.
Hope to see many of you there! Bring a friend!
