EVENING LECTURES AND FILMS

LAWRENCE HILL AND HIS NEWEST NOVEL THE ILLEGAL lh

with Lawrence Hill

Carrie Snyder from The Globe and Mail wrote in a review that “The Illegal is a twisting, intricately woven yarn that spins itself out at an incredible pace. I could not put the book down. Read it, you must.” So we suggest that you read it, and then come and meet the author, Lawrence Hill. Extra copies of the book will be available in the library. Funded by The Friends of the Pointe-Claire Library.

Wednesday, March 2, 7 – 8:30 p.m.

CH, (in English; bilingual question and answer period), free, but passes required
