Simcoe Author Talk Series: Lisa See (Virtual)

The Ramara Public Library has joined literary forces with nine other libraries (Collingwood, Wasaga, Barrie, Essa, Innisfil, Penetanguishene, Springwater, Clearview and New Tecumseth) to offer a 2021 virtual author talk series. 

Lisa See - The Island of Sea Women & The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane

“The fierce free-diving women on the Korean island of Jeju are the subject of Lisa See’s mesmerizing new historical novel that celebrates women’s strengths—and the strength of their friendships.”—Oprahmag.com

“Lisa See excels at mining the intersection of family, friendship and history, and in her newest novel, she reaches new depths exploring the matrifocal haenyeo society in Korea, caught between tradition and modernization.  This novel spans wars and generations, but at its heart is a beautifully rendered story of two women whose individual choices become inextricably tangled.”—Jodi Picoult, NYT bestselling author of A SPARK OF LIGHT and SMALL GREAT THINGS

Simcoe Author Talk Series: Ben Philippe (Virtual)

The Ramara Public Library has joined literary forces with nine other libraries (Collingwood, Wasaga, Barrie, Essa, Innisfil, Penetanguishene, Springwater, Clearview and New Tecumseth) to offer a 2021 virtual author talk series. 

Ben Philippe - Latest Title - Sure, I'll Be Your Black Friend

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a good white person of liberal leanings must be in want of a Black friend.

In the biting, hilarious vein of What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Blacker and We Are Never Meeting in Real Life comes Ben Philippe’s candid memoir-in-essays, chronicling a lifetime of being the Black friend (see also: foreign kid, boyfriend, coworker, student, teacher, roommate, enemy) in predominantly white spaces.  

In an era in which “I have many black friends” is often a medal of Wokeness, Ben hilariously chronicles the experience of being on the receiving end of those fist bumps. He takes us through his immigrant childhood, from wanting nothing more than friends to sit with at lunch, to his awkward teenage years, to college in the age of Obama, and adulthood in the Trump administration—two sides of the same American coin.

Ben takes his role as your new black friend seriously, providing original and borrowed wisdom on stereotypes, slurs, the whole “swimming thing,” how much Beyoncé is too much Beyoncé, Black Girl Magic, the rise of the Karens, affirmative action, the Black Lives Matter movement, and other conversations you might want to have with your new BBFF.

Oscillating between the impulse to be "one of the good ones" and the occasional need to excuse himself to the restrooms, stuff his mouth with toilet paper, and scream, Ben navigates his own Blackness as an "Oreo" with too many opinions for his father’s liking, an encyclopedic knowledge of CW teen dramas, and a mouth he can't always control.

From cheating his way out of swim tests to discovering stray family members in unlikely places, he finds the punchline in the serious while acknowledging the blunt truths of existing as a Black man in today’s world.

Extremely timely, Sure, I’ll Be Your Black Friend is a conversational take on topics both light and heavy, universal and deeply personal, which reveals incisive truths about the need for connection in all of us.

Simcoe Author Talk Series: Bruce Kirkby (Virtual)

The Ramara Public Library has joined literary forces with nine other libraries (Collingwood, Wasaga, Barrie, Essa, Innisfil, Penetanguishene, Springwater, Clearview and New Tecumseth) to offer a 2021 virtual author talk series. 

Bruce Kirkby's Latest Title - Blue Sky Kingdom

"
Exploring themes of modern distraction, the loss of ancient wisdom and Bruce Kirkby's process of coming to terms with his son's autism diagnosis, 'Blue Sky Kingdom' is the remarkable tale of one familys experience living in a refuge in the Zanskar valley where ancient traditions intersect with the modern world. Kirkby makes his home in Kimberley, BC."
 

A  wilderness writer and adventure photographer, Bruce is recognized for connecting wild places with contemporary issues.

With journeys spanning more than 80 countries and  2000 days, Bruce’s accomplishments include the first modern crossing of Arabia’s Empty Quarter by camel, a raft descent of Ethiopia’s Blue Nile Gorge by raft, sea kayak traverse of Borneo’s northern coast, and a coast-to-coast Icelandic trek.

A columnist for The Globe and Mail, author of two bestselling books, and a multi-National Magazine Award winner, Bruce’s writing has appeared in The New York TimesEnRouteHuffington PostExplore and Canadian Geographic.

His photographic clients include Patagonia, Lululemon, TimeOutside, NG Adventure and MacLean’s.  Winner of a prestigious Western Magazine Award, Bruce’s photography was selected by National Geographic as among “the most compelling adventure images of the decade.”

An Ambassador for Mountain Equipment Co-op , the former host of CBC’s  No Opportunity Wasted , and Producer of Travel Channel’s Big Crazy Family Adventure, Bruce makes his home in Kimberley, B.C.
