The Rooms Book Club is a unique opportunity for people who love to read to connect with Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who love to write.
Join first time novelist Bridget Canning for a conversation of her work and a chance to ask the author about the unlikely hero she wrote in Wanda Jaynes.
Wanda Jaynes is about to lose her job amidst a mountain of bills, and she suspects her musician boyfriend might be romantically interested in her friend, Trish.
Then Wanda’s life changes radically on a routine trip to the grocery store when a gunman enters the supermarket and opens fire. When Wanda comes face to face with the shooter, she instinctively hurls a can of coconut milk at his head and knocks him unconscious. In the ensuing media storm, she’s hailed as a hero and miracle worker.
In the aftermath of so much attention, she receives strange emails and believes she’s being followed. As her fear and paranoia grow, both her private and professional lives hang in the balance. And it takes another act of bravery before she’ll learn who she really is.
“Bridget Canning is a fierce new talent.” Lisa Moore. Come and see for yourself!
