The Read Local Book Club is a great opportunity to connect with other readers across the Kootenay's to discuss local authors’ books and meet the author.

In November they’re discussing a novel by Jennifer Ellis, “Confessions of a Failed Environmentalist”

Part satire, part serious, Confessions of a Failed Environmentalist is about the cast of characters who seem to pop up in all environmental disputes, and how all of us fail sometimes to do the right thing for the environment, in both big and small ways.
