It's spring so we thought we'd assign some lighter fare. We are excited to announce this collection of short stories for our next book selection for the #MARLreads human rights book club!
Our book will be in celebration of #AsianHeritageMonth! Join us this month as we read "How Does a Single Blade of Grass Thank the Sun" by Doretta Lau.
"Building on the success of the Journey Prize-shortlisted title story, the stories of How Does a Single Blade of Grass Thank the Sun? present an updated and whimsical new take on what it means to be Canadian. Lau alludes to the personal and political histories of a number of young Asian Canadian characters to explain their unique perspectives of the world, artfully fusing pure delusion and abstract perception with heartbreaking reality."
Tag us on Instagram and Facebook with a picture of you reading your book using #MARLreads!
Check back in with us later in May for discussion questions and info on our meeting at Millennium Library.
