Coast Lines Book Club with Aimee Wall
Wednesday, March 9, 7:30-8:30 p.m.
We are thrilled to announce our next Coast Lines selection – We, Jane by Aimee Wall (BA(Hons.)’08).
Searching for meaning in her Montreal life, Marthe begins an intense friendship with an older woman, also from Newfoundland, who tells her a story about purpose, about a duty to fulfill. It’s back home, and it goes by the name of Jane.
We, Jane probes the importance of care work by women for women, underscores the complexity of relationships in close circles, and beautifully captures the inevitable heartache of understanding home.
Join the author, along with Coast Lines host Angela Antle (BA’91) and political science professor Dr. Amanda Bittner as they discuss this remarkable debut novel.
