This is the Sparwood Library’s first blog post on our new website. And to that end I’d like to promote an upcoming author who will be visiting the Fernie Public Library on Friday, March 27th at 7 PM. John Vaillant, author of the critically acclaimed book, The Tiger, promotes his new novel, The Jaquar’s Children. This is part of the Fernie Public Library’s Booked! Writer’s Series. The reading is free, but bring your wallet and buy a copy of John’s book and have him sign it for you. I saw him speak in Banff about his first book, The Tiger, a few years ago and he is an interesting and engaging speaker. Highly recommended! We are happy to promote any and all “local” events that will benefit all who make the Elk Valley, home. For more information call the Fernie Public Library at 250-423-4458.
