Celebrate the Joy of Soup with Lethbridge Public Library

Andrea Bourque-White, Library Assistant, Lethbridge Public Library

In Conversation with Shari Lapena

As the days get shorter and colder what better way to spend an evening than checking out the Lethbridge Public Library’s The Word On The Street Fall Reading Series? Thursday, December 10, marks the final speaker in our series. While the month of November was devoted to non-fiction, for our final event we once turn once again to fiction, and to the genre of domestic thrillers, in particular. The Library is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting Shari Lapena, author of The End of Her, in an online interview.

In Conversation with Desmond Cole

As the days get shorter and colder what better way to spend an evening than checking out the Lethbridge Public Library’s The Word On The Street Fall Reading Series? Our first speaker in November was Jeff Rubin, former Chief Economist and Chief Strategist at CIBC World Markets. Our next author interview, planned for November 26, is Desmond Cole who will be speaking about his book, “The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power”.

A Conversation with Jeff Rubin

This September saw Lethbridge Public Library’s annual literary festival, The Word On The Street, move to an online format, and with that change we were able to extend the event well into the fall with The Word On The Street’s Fall Reading Series. Throughout the fall we’re able to host a number of well-known authors including Jeff Rubin, Desmond Cole, and Shari Lapena. On November 12, Lethbridge Public Library will be hosting the third author in our series, Jeff Rubin.

~*So Dark the Con of Man*~

One of my favourite things about reading is that it takes you away to a place you have never been. You are presented with such imagery that allows for you to enter the world that the author has created. On the flip side it is equally satisfying to be reading about a place that you have already been. To let the author take you back to a place of your travels, where you know what you are about to see but can now appreciate it in a whole new beauty as it is described to you. You let the words flow over you as you see the place from your memory as clear as day!

Welcome to“Red” Any Good Books Lately!

Hello! And welcome to “Red” Any Good Books Lately!  This is my first ever blog post and I am so excited you are taking the time to enjoy my ramblings on the many books that I have read! Some of them were Hidden Gems and others were just “rocks”, if you catch my meaning! I am hoping that through this blog you are able to find your own Hidden Gems from the books I have read! Now, first things first, an introduction to who I am and what type of reading I do!

~*Both Love and Hate are Mirror Versions of the Same Game*~

Everyone has their favourite book! It is the one book you pick up in times of need, the one book that will allow you to escape from the problems you are having. You become totally engrossed in the world and story that brings you a type of inner peace that only a book can bring you. It is usually your go to book for recommending to others and you love the story so much that you read it at least once a year. There is just something about this book that you connect with on a deeper level and it speaks to your soul in a way that no other book can.
 

Jonathan's Top Picks for 2019

We are about to close the books on 2019, and a year of centennial celebrations at Lethbridge Public Library. As part of our celebrations I decided, as one of the library’s adult services librarians, to commit to reading 100 books—one for each year the library has been in operation. I’ll admit the task seemed daunting at first. In setting my task I decided to give myself a rule: everything I read had to have a minimum of 100 pages (which also tied nicely into the hundred theme of the challenge).
