BOOK PALS Across Canada - PAL CANADA - Meet some Great People - New book Chosen

What a fabulous group of people!
Sponsored by PAL CANADA - this is a great event for people in our group 55 +

Please join in at any time! k.

I am hosting this event on Wednesday evening at 7:30pm

This book is Sufferance by Thomas King - recommended by one of our members - everyone will have a chance to pick a book.

This one has rave reviews from the critics.

We have an amazing group of readers and everyone is welcome!

About the Book
Jeremiah Camp, a.k.a. the Forecaster, can look into the heart of humanity and see the patterns that create opportunities and profits for the rich and powerful. Problem is, Camp has looked one too many times, has seen what he hadn’t expected to see and has come away from the abyss with no hope for himself or for the future.

So Jeremiah does what any intelligent, sensitive person would do. He runs away. Goes into hiding in a small town, at an old residential school on an even smaller Indian reserve, with no phone, no Internet, no television. With the windows shut, the door locked, the mailbox removed to discourage any connection with the world, he feels safe at last. Except nobody told the locals that they were to leave Jeremiah alone.

And then his past comes calling. Ash Locken, head of the Locken Group, the multinational consortium that Jeremiah has fled, arrives on his doorstep with a simple proposition. She wants our hero to formulate one more forecast, and she’s not about to take no for an answer. Before he left the Locken empire, Jeremiah had created a list of twelve names, every one a billionaire. The problem is, the people on the list are dying at an alarming and unnatural rate. And Ash Locken wants to know why.

A sly and satirical look at the fractures in modern existence, Sufferance is a bold and provocative novel about the social and political consequences of the inequality created by privilege and power—and what we might do about it.

PAL Canada is a registered not for profit organization thats focus is to enrich the lives of the entertainment community across Canada -it is now open to everyone. Many performers such as
Chilina Kennedy ( If you saw Beautiful in Toronto you saw Chilina - also on Broadway).

PAL Canada Supporting Cast is inviting you to participate in our new Game Days activity, "Book Pals".

Over the past 15 months or so, many digital book clubs have sprouted up across the globe, allowing people to interact with their favourite authors, discuss thorny moral questions or just see other human faces. For the past several months, PAL Canada has been working to bring members together from across the country to participate in various online activities via Zoom.

We will host a gathering to introduce our own book club, and have an informal discussion on how we plan to execute this new program and learn about:

You will recieve a zoom notice that afternoon.

If you have a friend or family member interested there are welcome to join us.

This project has been created by PAL Canada Foundation to support the provision of activities that can help alleviate isolation and promote the mental health of adults during the national response to Covid 19.

There is no fee for the book club - but if you enjoy your experiences and want to join us for other activities , a $20.00 yearly donation would be appreciated.
