One of the most wonderful ways I have gotten to know my readers is by attending book clubs all over PEI. These have been a truly special time to chat with people about the book’s resident themes.
Welcome to the Pendergast Family Book Club, a PEI family that comes together four times a year to celebrate their favourite reads, and to share laughs and expressions with each other. They meet the May long weekend, Canada Day weekend, Labour weekend and Thanksgiving weekend, the evening I was fortunate to join them.
The scene is jovial, full of candlelight and stories not shared before, touching on themes of wild unkempt family travel and private losses. I am so honoured to be here . Below, my retired grade nine English Language Arts teacher, who is proud to share with the group that he taught me everything I know. Almost, Alan! Almost.
