PWAC member book reading

PWAC member Sid Tafler of Victoria (and formerly of Montreal) will be in Montreal on September 4 for a reading and discussion of his book, Us and Them: A memoir of tribes and tribulations. Come out and support one of our own! All the details are below.

When: September 4, at 2 p.m.
Where: Eleanor London Cote Saint-Luc Public Library, 5851 Cavendish Blvd., Cote Saint-Luc, Quebec

Something fascinating happened in Canada during the last fifty years: it evolved from a place of narrow tribal divisions to a country recognized around the world for tolerance and diversity. Us and Them is the story of a changing country, changing people and a new understanding of identity, belonging and the place we call home. This story is based largely in Quebec, written by a former Montrealer now living in Victoria, B.C.

Praise for Us and Them:
“Tafler’s character portrayals are vivid and fascinating.” — Boulevard Magazine

” a compelling read . . . it has a linear, narrative structure that reads like fine fiction.” — Victoria News

One of “eight new non-fiction books that are worth your time.” “graceful, lucid writing.” — Vancouver Sun

” . . . told with skill and sensitivity, with a clear eye back and an optimistic eye forward.” — Victoria Times Colonist

“The writing is clean, professional and engaging.” — Monday Magazine

“Us and Them is a beautifully written book.” Susan Woods, broadcaster, CFAX 1070
