County Reads, to be held Thursday, April 19 at 7 p.m. at Waring Hall, features each of five local residents championing their chosen book.
The ninth annual event has turned over a new look this year – from a stylized new logo to a new venue and launch of County Reads More. The new plans replace the County Authors’ Festival, on hiatus this year.
Guest authors in the line up so far include David Frum, Charlotte Gray, Terry Fallis, Frances Itani, Rosemary Sullivan and Al Purdy A-Frame author-in-residence this year, Tim Faulkner – with more authors to be announced.
Some ticketed events will be fundraisers for the coming expansion of the Picton Branch Library. The first event in the series will bring Le Cercle Francais de Milford presenting the first Dorothy Speirs-Vincent Rendezvous. Roch Carrier will read from, and discuss his most recent book, Demain Matin, J’ai Ecris Un Roman, on Friday, April 20 at the Picton Town Hall, at 3 p.m. The presentation will be bilingual.
