Dewey Diva’s Book Recommendations 2019

Posted On Monday July 08, 2019

Wines & Spines, one of the library’s signature events, took place on June 19. Once again, the Dewey Divas provided us with an evening full of wonderful book recommendations. If you were unable to attend the event, never fear! We’ve compiled their recommendations into a handout that’s available now at library service desks so that you can add to your giant to-read list.

 We’ve featured 3 books below to pique your interest!

 Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of a world-famous 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer--and the secret reasons behind their dramatic break up.


The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters by Balli Kaur Jaswal

From the author of Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows comes this life-affirming, witty family drama about three Punjabi sisters embarking on a pilgrimage to their homeland to lay their mother to rest.


How Not to Die Alone by Richard Roper

Smart, darkly funny, and life-affirming, How Not to Die Alone is the bighearted debut novel we all need. For fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, it's a story about love, loneliness, and the importance of taking a chance when we feel we have the most to lose.

The Dewey Divas (and the Dudes) are a group of Canadian publishers’ reps- all passionate readers- who give book talk presentations of their favourite reads to librarians and school teachers. They pick the best upcoming books for kids, teens and adults in variety of genres, and introduce readers and librarians to forgotten gems and new writers that they may have missed.
