Pass the Book

Pass the Book aims to foster community and discussion through shared stories.  In an exciting partnership, Uxbridge Public Library, Oshawa Public Libraries, Whitby Public Library, Clarington Public Library, Scugog Memorial Public Library, and Ajax Public Library have selected one title for the entire Durham community to read, discuss, and share.  The title is “The Factory Voice” by Jeanette Lynes.

This exciting program gives people across Durham Region the opportunity to read an outstanding Canadian novel, come together to discuss the book, and attend programs based on the book’s themes.  Books can be borrowed from either the Uxbridge Public Library or the Zephyr Public Library.

This book is a light-hearted mystery that tells the story of four women trying to achieve their dreams while working at an aircraft factory in Northern Ontario during World War II.  The story is told through different voices as their lives intersect and create a snapshot of life in Canada in the 1940s.

Stay tuned for more details on a luncheon with the author on September 24.  Visit the Pass the Book website at for a list of events throughout Durham Region.
