Join us as we welcome author Joan Haggerty, Finalist for the 2017 Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize. Joan will be presenting her novel The Dancehall Years, a west coast saga from Bowen Island.

Both an epic adventure and an interracial drama, this spellbinding novel brims with gorgeous writing. The complex family saga begins one summer on Bowen Island and in Vancouver during the Depression and moves through Pearl Harbour and the evacuation of the Japanese and into the 1970s.

This is a free, drop in event. Everyone welcome. Supported by Friends of the Library.
