A lantern slide, a faded recipe book, a postcard from Mexico, a nugget of fool's gold — such are the clues available to the narrator of 'The Smallest Objective' as she excavates for buried treasure in her family home. In the end, the search yields both less and more than she ever imagined about this unique family, as well as the extent to which they were punctured and shaped by the events of the time.
'The Smallest Objective' was a pick for Mutsumi’s Book Club, curated by CTV’s Mutsumi Takahashi. Bill Arnott of The Miramichi Reader called the memoir “the work of a writer in her prime,” and Winnipeg Free Press reviewer Sharon Chisvin praised the book as "equal parts unsentimental, edifying and engaging.” It was also selected by 49th Shelf as one of five books to read for World Alzheimer's Month.
Known for his eclectic mix of hip hop, klezmer, and other styles such as drum & bass and folk music, Montreal-based musician Josh “Socalled” Dolgin will also be joining the launch as a musical guest.
Please join host Jeanette Kelly and author Sharon Kirsch for the much anticipated virtual launch of 'The Smallest Objective.'
