This calendar is reserved for non-commercial community events. What does that mean? Your event must be free or of nominal cost, available to anyone (although adult-only events are fine), and not for profit (but we do make exception for artists showing their work who would profit from any sales made and musicians hosting small-scale concerts). Not sure if your event fits? Drop us a line at email@example.com to check, or go ahead and submit anyhow – submissions are moderated and we’ll approve yours if it fits our criteria. Thanks for helping make Huntsville a vibrant community!

Ann Walmsley Author Visit & Book SIgning
July 27, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm$10
Author Ann Walmsley joins us to talk about her first book, The Prison Book Club, which was longlisted for the 2016 RBC Taylor Prize, the 2016 BC National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction and named as a best book of 2015 by the National Post.
The Prison Book Club tells the dramatic story of the 18 months that Walmsley spent participating in monthly book clubs in two men’s federal prisons in Ontario, despite having been the victim of a violent attack in England several years earlier. It reveals how discussing books changed the men and how the men changed her. Ann will tell us more about the inmates’ fascinating observations, the challenges of reporting in a prison, and her journey.
