Finalist: Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Prize for Nonfiction

Writers' Trust Jury Citation:

"With unwavering honesty, Lynette Loeppky navigates labyrinths of hospital wards and the human heart – while asking hard questions about what we owe each other, what we owe ourselves. By turns poignant and poetic, brutal and reflective, Cease is a compelling character study and an unflinching look at the end of love. A remarkable debut by an assured and talented author, Cease will haunt readers long after they’ve turned the last page."

One Book, One Stettler set to welcome ‘The Boy’

LITERALLY YOURS

It’s less than one week until the community of Stettler gathers at the Stettler Public Library to discuss the book “The Boy” with author Betty Jane Heger.

One Book, One Stettler is going to come together on Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. and discuss one of the best books that I have personally read in a while. There will be diner-style snacks and lively conversation. If you have not had a chance to read “The Boy” yet, call us at 403-742-2292 and we will place the book on hold for you. You shouldn’t, however, let the problem of not reading the book keep you away.
