Break out of your reading rut and join us for a book discussion circle with a new book each month. We will explore new fiction and non-fiction in a friendly atmosphere led by our McGill librarians.

In September we will explore Nostalia by M.G. Vassanji.

In the indeterminate future in an unnamed western city, physical impediments to immortality have been overcome. The prospect of eternal life, however, presents a new problem: rejuvenated bodies require rejuvenated identities. To make the transition, traces of a person’s past are erased and new, complete fictions are implanted in their stead. On occasion, though, cracks emerge, and reminders of discarded lives seep through, thoughts from a previous existence burrowing in the conscious mind.

Doctor Frank Sina specializes in sealing these memory leaks. He is satisfied in his profession, more or less secure in the life he shares with his much younger lover, content with his own fiction. But one day, Presley Smith arrives in Frank's office. Persistent thoughts are torturing Presley, recurring images of another time and place. As Frank tries to save
from the onslaught of memory, cracks emerge in his own fiction, and the thoughts that sneak through suggest a connection between the two men that goes well beyond a doctor and his patient. - Amazon

This program is free, but space is limited. Please register in person at McGill Branch or by calling 604-299-8955.  Registration for this month's discussion opens on August 30th.  Once registered, bring your library card on, or after, August 30th, to pick up a copy of the book at McGill Branch. Participants are asked to complete the book in advance of the event.
