Dal Reads Event – September 25

Dal Reads

This year’s Dal Reads pick is Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, a plot-driven novel about the power of information. It’s written in an engaging, conversational style, and also contains a generous dose of humour, mystery, travel, Google, code breaking, and secret societies – what’s not to like?

Copies of the novel are available at the Killam. Pick up yours today, and join the university-wide community book club engaged in the book.

The first Dal Reads discussion will take place on Thursday, September 25, at 5:00 at the University Club. Come by the pub and share your impressions of this fantastic read with fellow students, faculty, and librarians! (There will be snacks!)

Dal ReadsThe 2014 Dal Reads shortlist has been announced! The three contenders are:

1. Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore – Robin Sloan

2. The Antagonist – Lynn Coady

3. Reality Boy – A.S. King

(Personally, my vote would go to the book about a secret society, mysterious books, and the power of Google… but that’s just me.)
