I finally have my schedule figured out for the next few months and it makes me happy to be able to set the next #yegbookclub selection and date! I have to mix it up a bit and host the Book Club on a Wednesday this time because I am in rehearsal for the next dozen Mondays.
What: #yegbookclub - A Wake for the Dreamland by Laurel Deedrick-Mayne
Description: Friends William, Robert, and Annie are on the cusp of adulthood while the world is on the brink of war. It is a Canadian summer in 1939 and Robert and Annie’s love has blossomed, even as the inevitability of the boys joining up means separation and the first of many losses. Fearing he might not return, Robert makes William promise to take care of Annie. Every arena of their lives is infiltrated by the war, from the home front to the underground of queer London to the bloody battlefields of Italy. Even in the aftermath, in the shadow of The Dreamland, these friends fight their own inner battles: to have faith in their right to love and be loved, to honour their promises and ultimately find their way “home.”When: Wednesday, June 10th @ 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Where: In the comfort of whereever you want to be, on twitter!
