Archer Book Club: March 2022

Welcome to the Archer Book Club, or the ABC!

Selection Of The Month

Reviews from the University of Regina Press website (https://uofrpress.ca/Books/G/Gather)

    "Van Camp writes with the same sincerity and enthusiasm characteristic of his oral storytelling, using colloquial language and self-deprecating humour that invites readers to snuggle up and get cosy while the story unfolds on the pages. " —Winnipeg Free Press

    Praise for Van Camp:

    “Stories and storytellers are an important part of what makes us human. Van Camp’s stories, whether they feature light comedy, family discord and reconciliation or his vivid images of the legendary Wheetago monsters, revived by global warming and horrifically hungry for human flesh, are gifts to the reader. ” —Vancouver Sun
     
    “Van Camp is…a brilliant weaver of tales. ” —Quill & Quire
