Join us as we discuss the next book in our Short Stories Series, Open by Lisa Moore.
Lisa Moore's Open makes you believe three things unequivocally: that St. John's is the centre of the universe, that these stories are about absolutely everything, that the only certainty in life comes from the accumulation of moments which refuse to be contained.
Lisa Moore is the acclaimed author of Caught, February and Alligator. Open was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and a national bestseller. Moore lives in St. John's, Newfoundland.
Light refreshments will be available.
Please register online by Sunday, March 22, 2015.
