Book Club Wins Prize, Meets Author via Skype
Manitou library's book club met Winnipeg author, Sally Ito on August 9th via Skype to talk about her new book, “The Emperor's Orphans” and the craft of writing.
The book club had entered a competition in the spring through publisher, Turnstone Press and won six copies of Sally's book, a gift certificate and a chance to Skype with the author.
Book club members and Sally had an enjoyable and interesting conversation, with Sally explaining a little about the autobiographical book that recounted the story of her family's journeys to and from Japan and Canada and the effects of war on her family's lives and identities as Japanese Canadians.
A copy of Sally's book will be available at the library and the other copies will be made into a Book Club Kit, complete with questions about the book for book clubs to discuss.
Ask at the library about our other book club kits if you like to meet with friends and talk books!
