For those who want to get into reading this year, or are in a reading slump, Trecia Schell, the Community Services Librarian for Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library, suggests turning to your Netflix history. The Witcher, Stay Close, Maid, You, The Queen’s Gambit and Bridgerton, for example, are all TV shows based on books. Audiobooks are also always an option with Schell citing that they are great especially for those who like to multitask. “There is a richness to it because you have them read to you like a radio play,” says Schell. People can also stop in at their local library, tell a librarian their favourite genres, authors and or topics and the librarians will help steer them in the right direction of some new reads. The Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library is hosting five author readings between January and March. People can join these Canadian author readings online or by phone, more details on how to do that can be found at www.parl.ns.ca • A Matter of Equality: The Life’s Work of Senator Don Oliver, with Don Oliver Wednesday, Jan. 19, 7 p.m. • Good Burdens: how to live joyfully in the Digital Age, with Christina Crook Tuesday, Jan. 25, 7 p.m. • Losing It at 40, with Sarah Butland Wednesday, Feb. 9, 7 p.m. • A Walk in Woods, with Jeff Domm Wednesday, Feb. 16, 7 p.m. • Pluck, with Donna Morrissey Wednesday, Feb. 23, 7 p.m. • Waterfalls of Nova Scotia, with Benoit Lalonde Wednesday, March 9, 7:00 p.m.
