Sensational Summer Reads @your Library

There is a bit of a twist on the Sensational Summer Reading Contest at the Bracebridge Public Library. Each summer, staff choose eight greats reads and create a reading passport. Library members read and rate each book and return the passport at the beginning of October. Completed passports will be entered in for a Sensational Summer prize basket. This year the Bracebridge Public Library is hosting free virtual author talks with authors from the Sensational Summer Reading Contest.

On August 27, Maureen Jennings will talk about her new book “Heat Wave.” Many readers will be familiar with this iconic Canadian writer because of her series “Murdoch Mysteries.” Her latest book “Heat Wave,” is the first in a new series featuring Charlotte Frayne, private investigator. The virtual author talk starts at 6:30 PM. To register for this FREE program, email info@bracebridgelibrary.ca

The next free virtual author talk is with Drew Hayden Taylor. Taylor is an award-winning Canadian author and playwright. He will talk about his new book “Chasing Painted Horses” on September 17.

To register for the Sensational Summer Reading Contest or sign up for a library card, call 705-645-4171. You can also email us at info@bracebridgelibrary.ca to register for the Contest or for any of our free virtual authors events.
