‘One Book, One Community’ Events Upcoming in TNRD Communities

Kamloops, BC – April 26, 2024 – The public is invited to take part in several events scheduled between May 3 and 6, 2024, as part of the One Book, One Community (OBOC) shared reading experience, hosted by the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library (TNRL).

The 2024 Read for the OBOC program is Greenwood, an award-winning and national best-selling novel by author Michael Christie. Greenwood weaves family history with the timeless beauty of Vancouver Island’s old-growth forests – exploring complex family dynamics, inter-generational relationships, and profound impacts of tree loss in B.C.
