Welcome to Friends of the London Public Library

Put Thursday September 5th in your diary!!

Emma Donoghue


Best-selling author and screenwriter, Emma Donoghue will be Speaking with Friends on Thursday, September 5 at 7pm in the Wolf Performance Hall, Central Library.

Her new contemporary novel, Akin, is a funny, heart wrenching tale of a retired professor and his 11 year-old great-nephew on a trip to the French Riviera in hopes of learning about their family's past.

A reception and book-signing will follow in the Stephenson & Hunt Room. An evening with Emma Donoghue is always a delightful experience.
