Nalo at the Parkdale Library

Earlier this summer we were lucky enough to have Award-winning and wildly imaginative author Nalo Hopkinson stop by the Parkdale branch to visit the Word Out program and do a reading from her latest book, The Chaos.
Its always interesting to hear an author read from their own book; sometimes it can be amazing, and hearing the book as the author intended it can bring whole new aspects that I'd skimmed over to life. On the other hand, sometimes I wish that I hadn't heard the author at all, if they impose their own personality on a book too much through the reading, instead of letting it develop and grow on its own in the mind of the reader.
Don't forget to check out other amazing author events at the library as a part of this summer's Word Out program!
