The Pickering Public Library has book club sets to make it easier for book clubs to get the books they need to run a book club meeting.
What is a Book Club Set?
A Book Club Set is a canvas bag containing 12 copies of the same title along with book discussion questions and a feedback form. Some sets have an additional copy in large print or in audiobook and DVD format where available.
Have you read it yet? This year, Durham's Pass the Book selection is Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. This non-fiction book tells the story of Louis Zamperini, Olympic runner and American soldier whose bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean in May 1943.
If you started reading Unbroken after the title was announced on February 14th, and have finished reading it, visit any Pickering Public Library before the May 31st deadline to fill out a ballot and enter a draw for tickets for two to the Canadian Warplane Museum, dinner for two at Sagano Japanese restaurant at the Delta Hotel in Scarborough and a copy of the book. If you haven't read it yet, there's still time! Copies of Unbroken can be found by contacting the Pickering Public Library at 905-831-6265. For more information, visit www.passthebook.com.
