Everyone is welcome, bring your friends and enjoy a nice evening in the company of Lisa L’heureux, winner of the Trillium Book Award. (in French only)

On Saturday, September 28, bring your children and parents to the Ruth E. Dickinson branch or the North Gloucester branch and listen to the traditional French-Canadian stories of Pére Garneau. (in French only)
