Win a Free Book by authors Susin Nielsen or Susan Juby!


We are very excited to welcome award winning Canadian authors Susin Nielsen and Susan Juby to Ottawa next week. I’ve been doing some research to get ready for the event and I have to tell you, these ladies are fascinating!

Did you know that Susin is an acclaimed television writer who got her start writing screenplays for the Degrassi Junior High series? Did you know that Susin was asked to adapt Susan’s trilogy Alice, I think for television which is how they became friends?

These multitalented ladies are going to be on hand to answer your questions and share their insider perspectives on being a successful fiction and television writer at the Carlingwood branch on Thursday, May 14th from 6:30-8:30 pm.

We’re giving away one copy of each of their books We Are All Made Of Molecules and The Truth Commission to two lucky winners! To enter the contest, log into Twitter and tweet at us a question you’d like us to ask Susan and/or Susin at the event using our handle @opl_bpo, between May 7-12. The winners will be determined by random draw.

We will tweet the name of the winners and send a private twitter message on Wednesday, May 13, 2015. Winners will be able to pick up their book at the event or their local branch.

We’d like to thank Penguin and Random House for generously sharing these books with us.

A valid OPL card is not required to enter this contest.

I can't wait to meet these amazing authors!
