Arts & Culture Author sends gift to Book Club

 Author sends gift to Book Club


Mill Street Book Club Members praised the The Heaviness of Things That Float  (the June Book Club selection) for its writing style, setting, plot, character development and especially the authenticity of the novel.  The main character is Bernadette who is about to retire after working as a nurse for 40 years in a remote West Coast reserve.  We had a lively discussion about bridging cultures and becoming part of a community.

A special surprise was that the author Jennifer Manuel had reached out to our group and sent a letter thanking us for reading her book and shells she had collected on Vancouver Island for each member. It was exciting to feel a connection to the author whose book we thoroughly enjoyed and enthusiastically recommend.

The Book club is open to all.  Drop by the store for further information.
