ESA’s Own Book Club: The Wonder, by Emma Donoghue

The votes are in and our first book is going to be The Wonder, by Emma Donoghue.  This was the overwhelming favourite, selected from a shortlist of Canadian literary fiction which has been nominated for a Fall 2016 Literary Award.

  • Grab yourself a copy.
  • Read it.
  • Join us for some convivial conversation and great food in the Library on November 30th.

New members are always welcome.  We have a lovely “assortment” of students, staff, parents, grads and others, who participate.



Please join us for ESA’s Own Book Club.  New members are welcome anytime.

We had a very successful inaugural year during the 2015-16 school year.  We’re back for an even bigger and better book club in 2016-17.

  • We are going to read our way through five (5) books this year.
  • We are also going to hold two meetings on each book club day…  an after school meeting to accommodate any (students and/or staff primarily) who are unable to make it in the evening on account of school commitments.
  • This will be in addition to the regularly scheduled evening book club meeting.

For the regular (evening) book club meeting:

  • plan to join us in the Library for tea and treats at 6:45pm (bring your own mug!);
  • we will begin discussing our book promptly at 7pm;
  • expect to wrap up around 9pm;
  • all members of the ESA community – past and present – are welcome to attend.  We have a great group of students, staff, parents and grads among our complement.

  • Wed Nov 30th, 2016 – date changed to avoid conflict with ARTS Showcase!!
  • Wed Jan 18th, 2017
