Non-Fiction Book Club at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is Keon and Me by Dave Bidini.

Hockey is the lens through which we see our lives—how we measure right and wrong, how we understand our hopes and fears. So it was for Dave Bidini in 1974, the last year Dave Keon played in Toronto. In a new grade in a new school, Bidini found himself the victim of a bully—a depredation he could understand only by thinking about what the Leafs' dauntless captain went through game after game. Throughout his twenty-two-year career, Keon was only in one hockey fight, in his last game as a leaf on April 22, 1974. It was on this day that eleven-year-old Bidini decided to fight back. Part ode to a legendary hockey player, part memoir, Keon and Me captures what we all cherish in the game we love and the importance of the innocence we cling to long after the cheers have faded.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

Registration is required. To register, click on the green button below, call 905-668-6531 x 2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.

Please pick your book up at the second floor information desk of the Central Library.

The Whitby Public Library is looking for members for our Teen Advisory Group (TAG).  This group will meet once a month to discuss books, programs, video games, movies, music, and more.  Participants will have the opportunity to share their ideas and help develop outstanding library services for youth.  As a TAG member, you will be able to create displays, suggest materials for purchasing, assist with special events and programs, and have a say about what goes on at your library.  TAG members will be expected to participate in the programs that they help plan.

If you are in grades 7 through 12 and would like to get involved, come out to a meeting and see what it’s all about! Meetings will take place at the Central Library on the second Thursday of every month.

Children are expected to attend all 8 dates in their session, barring illness.

Non-Fiction Book Club at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is The Stop: How the Fight for Good Food Transformed a Community and Inspired a Movement by Nick Saul and Andrea Curtis.

In 1998, Nick Saul took the reins of a little urban food bank, a last-hope refuge where desperate people could stave off hunger for one more day with canned salt, sugar and fat. To work there was dispiriting; to go there for a handout, humiliating. Over the next fourteen years, The Stop evolved into something unprecedented, a community food centre that not only helps people when they're hungry, it uses food to build skills, health, confidence and independence. With its kitchens, gardens, greenhouse and farmers' market, it has attracted the support of celebrities, benefactors and governments, inspired by its fresh new approach to solve an old problem. One of the greatest social innovation stories you will ever read, The Stop is a timely book about overcoming obstacles, challenging sacred cows and creating lasting change.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

Registration is required. To register, click on the green button below, call 905-668-6531 x 2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.

Please pick your book up at the second floor information desk of the Central Library.

Non-Fiction Book Club at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean.

Why did Gandhi hate iodine (I, 53)? How did radium (Ra, 88) nearly ruin Marie Curie's reputation? And why is gallium (Ga, 31) the go-to element for laboratory pranksters? The periodic table is a crowning scientific achievement, but it's also a treasure trove of passion, adventure, betrayal, and obsession. These fascinating tales follow all the elements on the table as they play out their parts in human history, finance, mythology, conflict, the arts, medicine, and the lives of the (frequently) mad scientists who discovered them. The Disappearing Spoon masterfully fuses science with the classic lore of invention, investigation, discovery, and alchemy, from the big bang through the end of time.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

Registration is required. To register, click on the green button below, call 905-668-6531 x 2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.

Non-Fiction Book Club at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter by Alison Wearing.

Alison Wearing had a largely carefree childhood until she learned, at the age of twelve, that her family was a little more complex than she had realized. Sure, Joe Wearing had always been unusual compared to the other dads in the neighbourhood: he loved to bake croissants, wear silk pyjamas around the house, and skip down the street singing songs from Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. But when he came out of the closet in the 1970s, when homosexuality was still a cardinal taboo, it was a shock to everyone in the quiet community of Peterborough, Ontario—especially to his wife and three children. Alison's father was a professor of political science and amatuer choral conductor, her mother was an accomplished pianist and marathon runner, and together they had fed the family a steady diet of arts, adventures, mishaps, normal frustrations and inexhaustible laughter. Yet despite these agreeable circumstances, Joe's internal life was haunted by conflicting desires. As he began to explore and understand the truth about himself, he became determined to find a way to live both as a gay man and a devoted father, something almost unheard of at the time. Through extraordinary excerpts from his own letters and journals from the years of his coming out, we read of Joe's private struggle to make sense and beauty of his life, and take inspiration from an evolving society and become part of the vanguard of the gay revolution in Canada. This book is also the story of "coming out" as the daughter of a gay father. Balancing intimacy, history and downright hilarity, Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter is a captivating tale of family life in this revelatory memoir.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

Registration is required. To register, click on the green button below, call 905-668-6531 x 2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.

Please pick your book up at the second floor information desk of the Central Library.
