Ottawa Words and Pages Book Club
We are a lively and congenial group that loves discussing not only the books we read but also related topics, often drawing from our personal experiences.
Our club, now in its tenth year, has about a dozen women of varying ages and backgrounds. Club members host meetings the last Thursday evening of each month, and as well we may get together for dinner or a movie. The club also meets once a year for a wonderful potluck feast as well as hosting a summer local mystery author visit. We have welcomed 5 or 6 local Ottawa authors; their insights into the book world are fascinating!
Our authors have included David Mitchell, Joseph Boyden, Dickens, and local authors Peggy Blair and Barbara Fradkin. Some titles we enjoyed were The Thousand Autumn of Jacob de Zoat, The Orenda, Ready Player One, The Library at Mount Char, Mighty be your Powers, Madame Bovary, The Illegal.
We read a wide range of of fiction, non-fiction, memoirs, etc. reflecting our backgrounds in international work, law, teaching, social work and volunteer interests. Come and join us!
