This Thursday (Sept. 27) at 2:30 there’s a lecture at U of T’s East Asian Library by Arlene Chan, the author of the book Chinese in Toronto from 1878: From Outside to Inside the Circle (which we have at Laidlaw Library).

There was a lovely air of anticipation at Queen’s Park as the tents were being set up for Sunday’s Word on the Street. Here are a few of the authors featured this year, and where you can find their latest book at Laidlaw Library:
Here are four novels in the UC Library collection whose film adaptations were shown at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival — including two I saw. (I admit I was excited that one of the screenings, “Mr. Pip,” featured a Q&A with Hugh Laurie!)
- The Reluctant Fundamentalist, by Mohsin Hamid book film
- Mister Pip, by Lloyd Jones book film
- Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell book film
- Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy book film
Need a study break? Why not borrow a book from our new Best Sellers collection? It’s just inside the entrance to Laidlaw Library and includes series like The Hunger Games, Twilight, and Game of Thrones. We have lots of bestselling authors, both fiction (e.g.John Grisham and Jodi Picoult) and non-fiction (e.g. Malcolm Gladwell, and Tina Fey).
