Announcing Next Year's Book!

We are excited to announce next year’s Algonquin Reads book of choice! The 2010-2011 book is Holding Still for as Long as Possible, by Zoe Whittall. The book revolves around a love triangle of a paramedic, a former teen star and fashionable filmmaker. It describes the lives of twenty-somethings who grew up on anti-anxiety medications, war on terror, SARS and text-messaging. Emerging author Zoe Whittall’s debut novel Bottle Rockets Heart was named a Quill & Quire Best Book and Globe and Mail “Top 100” book.
The book will be available in the First Class bookstore (at Algonquin College) at a reduced rate, especially for Algonquin Reads! Pick up your copy and join in on all the fun, starting August 2010!
