  • February 3, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • Glebe Parents Daycare

I'm very pleased to announce that thanks to Laura, we have been able to change the Monday Feb 3rd regular meeting to an actual Author Meeting with Nancy Richler! Location will come closer to the time.

Ms. Richler is the author of 3 books:

Throwaway Angels (1996)
Your Mouth Is Lovely (2003)
The Impostor Bride (2012)

But on feb 3rd we will be reading/discussing The Imposter Bride.

The Imposter Bride: A Novel
by Nancy Richler

HarperCollins Publishers Ltd
March 12, 2012

When a young, enigmatic woman arrives in post-war Montreal, it is immediately clear that she is not who she claims to be. Her attempt to live out her life as Lily Azerov shatters as she disappears, leaving

a new husband and baby daughter, and a host of unanswered questions. Who is she really and what happened to the young woman whose identity she has stolen? Why has she left and where did she go? It is left to the daughter she abandoned to find the answers to these questions as she searches for the mother she may never find or really know.

    Another excellent evening with great people. This was my first "meet the author" meeting. I love to learn about the writing process and how the characters are born and grow. Nancy's comment about being surprised where the story ended up was really enlightening!

      sure, can you arrive by 600 so we have time to heat them up? I think we should try to start at 630 or shortly after.
