Old FilthRead this month's chosen title, Old Filth by Jane Gardam, and then come hang out with fellow book lovers at Cameron Branch on March 18th to discuss the book with a BPL librarian. 

Jane Gardam's novel skillfully weaves the life story of barrister "Old Filth" - "Failed In London, Try Hong Kong." Sir Edward Feathers has progressed from struggling young barrister to wealthy expatriate lawyer in Hong Kong to distinguished retired judge, living out his last days in comfortable seclusion in Dorset. The engrossing and moving account, from birth in colonial Malaya, to Wales, where he is sent as a "Raj orphan," to Oxford, his career and marriage, parallels much of the 20th century's torrid and twisted history.

The book club is free, but space is limited. Please register online, or call or visit the information desk at any BPL branch. Bring a copy of your registration confirmation email to the Cameron Branch to pick up your copy of the book.

We will be meeting in the Willow Room in the Cameron Recreation Complex.

Our next meetings will be Saturdays April 29, May 20, and June 17, from 3-4:30 pm. Registration for each meeting will open on the day of the previous meeting.

Questions? Call 604-421-5454.
