Save the date for Words the Orangeville Way 2022!
Join the Orangeville Public Library in partnership with BookLore as we present an afternoon looking back to the past. The 2022 Words the Orangeville Way literary lineup infuses local and history. Orangeville’s own freelance writer Bernadette Hardaker will moderate a panel discussion between authors Eva Jurczyk, Hugh Brewster & Laurie McGaw, and Carol Newall whose most recent books touch on themes of determination and female achievement.
Eva Jurczyk’s debut novel, The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, is a mystery told from the point of view of Liesl Weiss, a librarian who works with historical and rare books in a university library set in Toronto.
Carol Newall’s recently released biography, Outside the Gate: A True Story of a British Home Child in Canada, is Winnie Cooper’s story of love and loss, pain and joy told by her granddaughter to reveal a troubling chapter of Canadian and British history.
Hugh Brewster and illustrator Laurie McGaw’s junior biography, Unsinkable Lucile, tells the story of how a farm girl from rural Ontario named Lucy Duff Gordon became the queen of fashion and survived the Titanic.
