The Read Local Book Club connects readers and authors from across the Kootenays for a book club and author visit on Zoom!

In January we’re reading and discussing  The Stone Frigate: The Royal Military College’s First Female Cadet by Kate Armstrong.

“Kate Armstrong was an ordinary young woman eager to leave an abusive childhood behind her when she became the first female cadet admitted to the Royal Military College of Canada. As she struggled for survival in the ultimate boys club, she called on her fierce and humourous spirit to push back against the whims of a domineering and patriarchal organization. Later in life, feeling unfulfilled in her post-military career, she realized that finding her true path forward meant she had to go back to the beginning and reclaim the truth of what she had experienced all those years ago.”
