2016 Bass Lake Book Club Round Up

The 2016 inaugural season of the Bass Lake Book Club has come to a close…  sort of!

This year we read our way through 4 books:

New members are always welcome. 

We will continue to talk about books – virtually – over the winter.  Those of us who are able to plan to get together to talk about books again over the Easter 2017 long weekend.

If you are in Toronto and are interested in joining us on a “field trip”…  Some of us are attending the International Festival of Authors together – and going out for dinner afterwards – on Friday October 28th.

  • We are attending the session titled Tales of Truth (@ 6:30pm). 
  • This session features the author of one of the books we read – Madeleine Thien, whose book has been nominated for 3 major Literary Awards this fall.
  • This session also features debut author Alexandra Risen – a friend of a member of our group – whose recently released memoir, Unearthed, has been receiving high praise all round.
