Louella Lester Online Book Launch

Please join Louella Lester as she celebrates the virtual launch of Glass Bricks (At Bay Press), featuring a conversation hosted by Angeline Schellenberg

Registration is required to directly participate in the Zoom webinar. It will be simultaneously streamed on YouTube and available for viewing thereafter.

What does it really mean to work for a living? Told in short prose, Lester shares her experience working both traditional and non-traditional jobs. Sometimes raw and often humourous, Glass Bricks explores the significance of our basic human right to work in an era where the struggle to find meaningful employment is all too real.
