Genre of the Month
This month we remember the sacrifices our veterans made so that we can live in a free country. Our genre is World War I and World War II, and there are many books in the library that tell true stories and fictional stories based on the reality of living in that time. Jump into one of these books and discover what it must have been like to be called to serve in the war, or to have to be brave while bombs are being dropped overhead.
Author of the Month
The author we are featuring this month is Deborah Ellis. She has won many awards for her writing and has been named to the Order of Canada. Ellis is a feminist and a peace activist and she often writes about children in war torn countries who are faced with life-altering choices and situations where they must be very brave. The Breadwinner Trilogy is the story of a young Afghan girl living during the Taliban occupation of Afghanistan. Her name is Parvana and she has to cut off her hair and disguise herself as a boy so that she can earn money to support her family. All of the royalties from the Breadwinner books go to Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan.
