Community Conscious: A Virtual Literary Salon
It’s an online book club with a twist! We're reading books that inspire reflection and pair well with wine.
Each month, join Carrie Sinkowski (Community Legal Clinic - Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk) and special guests for an enjoyable evening of exploring themes of social justice and connecting literature to local community.
Upcoming featured titles:
- February 23 – Little Fires Everywhere, by Celeste Ng
- March 23 – The Glass Hotel, by Emily St. John Mandel
- April 27 – Born a Crime, by Trevor Noah
For added dimension, Burning Kiln Winery and Instagram sommelier Somm on a Dime will confer to recommend a wine pairing for each book. Interested participants have the option of ordering directly from Burning Kiln, with free shipping and a discount available when purchasing a three-month package. And all attendees have the chance to win an overnight stay at the historic Burning Kiln Farmhouse in St. Williams, Ontario!
- One-time registration is required for access to and updates about our monthly meetings on Zoom. There is no cost to participate. Just come prepared with a curious mind, insights to share, and respect for difficult topics and different life experiences!
- The library can offer a limited number of book club copies to borrow in the weeks leading up to each meeting, in addition to regularly circulating books, ebooks, and audiobooks. Register early to request information about this service.
- Participation in the wine program is optional and self-directed. You will be contacted after registration with details and recommendations.
