Join our virtual book club as we discuss Indians on Vacation by Thomas King on Zoom.

Registration is required no later than one hour before the event — the Zoom link will be sent to the email address you use to register. The meeting link and instructions will be emailed to registrants one hour before the start of the event.

Approximately one month before the meeting, the first 11 registered participants will be contacted to coordinate book pick up from the library.

We have a limited number of copies of the book for registered book club participants. If all of the copies are spoken for, you can try to obtain a copy in one of the following ways:

  1. Placing a hold on a regular circulating copy of the title in our online catalogue.
  2. Placing a hold on an ebook or audiobook version of the title, if available, in our online catalogue here.
  3. Checking other local library systems to see if they have available copies, such as West Vancouver Memorial Library or North Vancouver District Library.
  4. Obtaining the title through an Interlibrary Loan.

If you have any questions, please reach out to cpentland@cnv.org.

About the book

Meet Bird and Mimi in this brilliant new novel from one of Canada’s foremost authors. Inspired by a handful of old postcards sent by Uncle Leroy nearly a hundred years earlier, Bird and Mimi attempt to trace Mimi’s long-lost uncle and the family medicine bundle he took with him to Europe.
