Haldimand County Public Library invites residents to virtual book talk with award-winning local author Brad Smith

Spend an evening with Haldimand County Public Library’s One Book One Haldimand author Brad Smith as he discusses his latest book Cactus Jack.

“In Cactus Jack, Brad Smith tells a compelling story of thoroughbred racing’s bottom rung. These are not the wealthy owners, the marquee trainers and name jockeys, but the debt-ridden, hardscrabble class striving to get back to even in life and maybe find a bit of redemption along the way. The novel is deeply intimate in its telling, yet cinematic in story range and scope, clear winner by a dozen lengths.” – Jim Tomlinson, author of Things Kept, Things Left Behind.

The virtual author visit will take place online using Zoom on Thursday, May 27 at 7pm. Participants will enjoy a short reading, a book talk and a Q & A session facilitated by library staff. You do not need a library membership to join the discussion!

To register, call your local branch at 289-674-0400 or e-mail the library’s Outreach Coordinator at kkrupicz@haldimandcounty.on.ca and indicate “OBOH” in your email’s subject line.

Copies of Cactus Jack are available at all library branches. Call your local branch at 289-674-0400 or use the online catalogue to reserve a copy.
