Friends Only Event
Enjoy a relaxed afternoon talking about books with guest speaker and group discussion. This month’s book is Vicki Laveau-Harvie’s Stella prize-winning memoir, The Erratics (2018). With sharp humour and artful restraint, it tells the confronting story of Laveau-Harvie’s return to her parents’ isolated home in Alberta, Canada, after years of estrangement. What is it about this memoir that sets it apart, and what can we learn from it? Join special guest, SL magazine editor Cathy Perkins, to discuss this much-admired book.
Includes refreshments and reading notes. Small group event - bookings essential.
