Westmount Public Library / Paragraphe Bookstore Event
Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 7 p.m.
This event is presented by the Westmount Public Library in Westmount, Quebec, in collaboration with Paragraphe Bookstore. Register in advance on Eventbrite or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
With Linda Leith, author of The Girl from Dream City: A Literary Life.
Hosted by Shelley Pomerance.
Join Linda Leith, OC, writer, publisher, and founder of the Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival as she discusses her new book, The Girl from Dream City: A Literary Life.
In the memoir, this Canadian literary icon shares her life spread across continents and immersed in books. It’s the life that many young women dream of: education in some of Europe’s most beautiful cities before becoming a novelist, essayist, translator and literary curator. But the start of Linda Leith’s journey is anything but idyllic. The daughter of a glamorous mother and a charming left-wing doctor, she is never told of her father’s psychiatric breakdown or his subsequent shock therapy for what was then called manic depression.
Author-autographed books will be available on the Paragraphe Bookstore site.
