    On April 25, join author Dimitri Nasrallah and CBC’s Alan Neal for a conversation about the One eRead 2024 book: Hotline. Universal human themes - belonging, identity, isolation, and connection - make Hotline a perfect story to read and discuss with thousands of fellow Canadians as part of this year's One eRead /Un livrel program. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a question & answer session at the end of the discussion.  

    This is a hybrid event: the program is in-person, but we will also stream live on OPL's YouTube page. Registration is for the in-person portion of the event, an Eventbrite account is not required to register. A recording of the event will be provided on YouTube afterwards. A One eRead Canada French language event is being hosted by BAnQ in Montreal on April 23 at 7:00pm (livestream available). 

    The Canadian Urban Libraries Council (CULC) is excited to bring you Canada's largest bilingual book club, while highlighting the need for equitable access to digital books in Canadian libraries. Throughout April, public libraries across the country will participate in One eRead / Un livrel Canada, during which thousands of readers will borrow digital copies of Dimitri Nasrallah's novel Hotline from their public libraries with no waitlists.  

    Longlisted for the 2022 Giller Prize, and a Canada Reads selection in 2023, Hotline is the story of Muna, a mother starting a new life in Montreal after escaping devastation in war-torn Lebanon with her 8-year old son in the 1980s. Even as she struggles to find acceptance, healing, and purpose in a new city where she doesn't feel welcome, Muna finds herself providing solace and a sympathetic ear to fellow Montrealers via her job as a hotline operator for a weight-loss center.  

    Dimitri Nasrallah is the author of four novels. He was born in Lebanon in 1977, and lived in Kuwait, Greece, and Dubai before moving to Canada. His internationally acclaimed books have garnered nominations for CBC Canada Reads, the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and the Grand Prix du Livre de Montréal, and won the Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction and the McAuslan First Book Prize. He is the fiction editor at Véhicule Press. 

    Alan Neal is the award-winning host of the afternoon show All In A Day, heard 3 to 6 p.m. on CBC Radio One and CBC Listen. He has lived in Ottawa almost his entire life, and is known for his carefully researched interviews of authors and musicians.

     

    This program is presented by the Canadian Urban Libraries Council, Ottawa Public Library, Library and Archives Canada and the CBC.

    What if Earth had a beating heart that powered everything on the planet? In a way, the Global Ocean is like Earth’s heart.  

    Using this powerful premise and the principles of ocean literacy, award-winning author Rochelle Strauss builds students’ understanding of the global ocean’s influence on us, and our influence on the ocean.  

    Through this dynamic, engaging and interactive presentation, students will dive into the global ocean to discover that while Earth is home to five distinct oceans, these oceans are actually connected to form one global ocean and this one ocean sustains all life on Earth. The presentation will highlight the important roles the global ocean plays in supporting all life on Earth, such as regulating Earth’s climate, controlling weather, providing habitat, and as a source of food for many animals on the planet (including people).  

    But the global ocean is in trouble, with many human activities having a huge impact on the global ocean.  Students will explore how pollution, overfishing, acidification, habitat destruction, warming water and rising sea levels are all affecting the health of the global ocean.  

    Through stories called Ripples of Change, Rochelle will share that the news isn’t all bad. By showcasing leading ocean conservation initiatives and other good news stories from around the world, Rochelle will demonstrate the actions people and organizations are taking to protect the global ocean.  

    The final, and perhaps most impactful and dramatic moment of the presentation comes with an interactive activity that engages the full audience and which clearly demonstrates to each student the power of just one person to make a change. This activity leaves students feeling empowered and inspired. It will also build their capacity for making informed and responsible decisions when it comes to protecting the Earth’s global ocean.

    Rencontrez l'autrice Anne Renaud et profitez d'une lecture de son livre Albertine Petit-Brindamour déteste les choux de Bruxelles. Vous aurez également l'occasion de lui poser des questions et de participer à une activité de bricolage. Des instructions et une liste de matériel seront fournies en avance du programme.

    Anne Renaud est l’autrice de plus de vingt-cinq œuvres jeunesse, écrites autant en français qu’en anglais.
