  • All materials accessed in branch and returned to the drop box will be quarantined for 72 hours.

Virtual Author Visit with Kenneth Oppel

Join Wellington County Library in conversation with Kenneth Oppel to explore his newest book, Hatch. Fans left desperate for more at the end of Bloom will dive into this second book of the trilogy. Kenneth Oppel expertly escalates the threats and ratchets up the tension in this can’t-read-it-fast-enough adventure with an alien twist. This event is recommended for students aged 10-14. Classrooms and schools are welcome to participate in this virtual Zoom event. Presented in partnership with Eden Mills Writers’ Festival.

Tuesday, October 6 at 1:30 pm

Registration is required via www.edenmillswritersfestival.ca.
