Join us at the library for a special book club event where we will discuss The Woo-Woo by Lindsay Wong, chat with the author, and learn more about Book Clubs at the Library and in the community.

We are celebrating Book Clubs and the conversations that they inspire in this special library event! At this event, we will be hosting celebrated local author, Lindsay Wong, discussing her award-winning memoir, The Woo-Woo, as well as learning more about and connecting with members of Coquitlam Book Clubs.

  • 2-3pm: Author Reading and QA
  • 3-4pm: Book Club Meet and Greet and Festivities

More about the Author: Lindsay Wong is a local Coquitlam author. Lindsay Wong grew up with a paranoid schizophrenic grandmother and a mother who was deeply afraid of the "woo-woo" -- Chinese ghosts who come to visit in times of personal turmoil. From a young age, she witnessed the woo-woo's sinister effects; when she was six, Lindsay and her mother avoided the dead people haunting their house by hiding out in a mall food court, and on a camping trip, in an effort to rid her daughter of demons, her mother tried to light Lindsay's foot on fire. The eccentricities take a dark turn, however, and when Lindsay starts to experience symptoms of the woo-woo herself, she wonders whether she will suffer the same fate as her family. At once a witty and touching memoir about the Asian immigrant experience and a harrowing and honest depiction of the vagaries of mental illness, The Woo-Woo is a gut-wrenching and beguiling manual for surviving family, and oneself.
