Books winner

Congrats to Shirley Kirkpatrick of Riverview, winner of our Canada Reads books contest. Thanks to everyone who entered! Shirley wrote:

I must say that "Les Miserable". By Victor Hugo was a life changing story for me as a youth. This powerful story of injustice, forgiveness and transformation of the human spirit continues to inspire me 60 years later. I don't remember how I came to have it in my possession but I remember reading it non stop, staying up thru the night. It still has a relevant message for us this day.
