Read the book!

For the inaugural year of the Algonquin Reads! Project, the committee has chosen a book by a local Ottawa author, Joanne Proulx. The book is called Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet.

It is a Globe and Mail Top 100 Selection, and is published by Penguin Canada. It is a compelling, well written tale from the perspective of a seventeen year old who suddenly finds he can forsee someone's death. It is suspenseful, funny, and thought-provoking.

Read the book and get involved in a number of events to be hosted around Algonquin College, from September 2009 to April 2010!
