This year more than 1000 public libraries across Canada are getting together for the national bilingual digital book club, One eRead, from April 1 to 30, 2022. A Canada-wide team of librarians recommended a variety of titles and The Break by Katherena Vermette came out as the top choice. You'll be happy to know that OPL is a leading role into facilitating One eRead - bookmarks and posters are what's to come next week.
A powerful intergenerational family saga, The Break showcases Katherena Vermette’s rich writing talent as an exciting new voice in Canadian literature. In The Break, Stella, a young Métis mother, looks out her window and notices someone in trouble on the Break — a barren field on an isolated strip of land outside her house — she alerts the police of the possible crime. To avoid spoilers, that’s all we’ll divulge in anticipation of you reading and enjoying the book yourself.
If you’re in a book club and are looking for a book to suggest, The Break is a great option because all month long, you will be able to download the book in digital format without any waitlists through participating libraries! Also, you’ll be able to enhance your book reading experience by attending the live virtual conversation, on April 20 and April 21. We’ll be chatting about the book with book-loving hosts from CBC/Radio-Canada.
Join the Facebook group and the follow One eRead Canada on Twitter @1eRead_unLivrel to chat about the book with other people across Canada who are also reading The Break. Mark your calendar to borrow the eBook as soon as April starts and to be in the know during the live events, because One eRead will be here soon!
