In celebration of Book Clubs and the conversations that they inspire, we are inviting all of our community book club members as well as anyone interested in joining a book club to our very first CPL Virtual Book Club meeting of 2021!
We look forward to discussing Kim Thúy’s novel, connecting members of our community with other community book club members, and providing support to individuals who are interested in starting a virtual book club or transitioning their existing book club to an online format.
Please feel free to join at any point of this scheduled event:
- 6:30-7pm: Welcome and introduction to virtual book clubs

More about Kim Thúy: This masterful book about the lives and experiences of Vietnamese refugees in Canada was a finalist for the 2019 Governor General’s Literary Award in translation and longlisted for the 2018 Scotiabank Giller Prize. “Thúy is known for her short and elegant stories about being a refugee and immigrant, and the challenges of adapting to a new culture. In her novels, we experience Vietnam’s colours and tastes, the difficulties of exile but also riches, and a search for identity that we can all recognize ourselves in.” – The New Academy jury citation “Kim Thúy’s novels are as compact as her tiny titles might suggest… but their poetic contents punch well above their weight in terms of story and raw emotional heft.” – Becky Toyne, The Globe and Mail
