Kate S | 6140 comments 20.2 Canadian Women

In honor of Emily of New Moon and Station Eleven, read a book written by a woman born in Canada.

Jayme (jaymetheghostreader) | 2287 comments Can we read a book that has the genre childrens on it for this task? I am thinking of "The Story Girl"

The usual rules apply. If it is shelved at BPL as YA/Juv and has a low lexile, it will be eligible for the task, but not for styles.

Jayme (jaymetheghostreader) | 2287 comments okay, as long as it is eligible for the task.

I didn't look at the specific book.

Yep, on her GR profile. I get these when you post a book.

But what did you plan to read by her. We could also use this thread for ideas and recommendations.

Same with you, Ed. What are you hankering after with Karleen Bradford?

Valerie Brown | 2471 comments These women are all on the list, but if you are looking for a book....

I plan on reading: The Stone Carvers (I read The Whirlpool last fall season).

I have recently read and enjoyed (a lot!) these books:
The Outlander
Half Blood Blues
any Louise Penny


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12296 comments I have Louise Penny's first book penciled in - it's one of the reasons I asked about her series in the socializing thread a few weeks back.

I liked The Outlander, too. One of my favorite authors is Alice Munro, and another is Margaret Laurence. I'm hoping to get to others this season as I'm exploring books by Canadian women this year.

Luck by Joan Barfoot
The Russländer by Sandra Birdsell
Road Ends by Mary Lawson (I have read another by her, so fully expect to like this one)
Paris Stories by Mavis Gallant

But my pencil was sharp, so who knows if I'll get to all of these.

I absolutely loved Half Blood Blues - and it's historical AND no O in the author name!

I just got into Louise Penny at the end of last season and so I am planning to rack up some multiples here :)
