the author's book club featured in the star

At the start of January 2020, a friend of mine, Ann Y.K. Choi (who is also a Toronto-based author), and I started a new initiative, The Authors’ Book Club, with the goal of connecting book clubs with authors, to help facilitate book clubs reaching out to authors to speak at their events, and on a broader level, to promote Canadian and Indigenous voices. Fiona Ross, a teacher-librarian, was of immense help to us early on in building this initiative and has since joined us as an organizer. The goal is for The Authors’ Book Club to be a central hub for book clubs in Canada to go to in order to find authors to speak at their events, in person or via a video chat. We were so pleased that The Toronto Star’s Deborah Dundas took note of our efforts and wrote about us in her article.
