Join Uzma Jalaluddin, author of Ayesha at Last, for a virtual event on Thursday, August 19 at 7:00 p.m., where she will be speaking with Emily Dalhgren, BWG Library’s Simcoe Reads Champion, and answering your questions.
Seven Simcoe County Libraries are participating in Simcoe Reads 2021 – Barrie, Essa, Innisfil, Midland, New Tecumseth, Ramara and Bradford West Gwillimbury. Each Library’s book is defended by a local champion who will debate the merits of their book in September 2021. BWG Library is proud to have Emily Dalhgren defending Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin.
Everyone is also welcome and encouraged to attend any Simcoe Reads virtual author visit. Below is a list of all the author visits and dates. Links to each library’s event registration page can be found on the Simcoe Reads page of the BWG Library website.
