City to join readings of UWindsor grad’s book

A book by a UWindsor graduate has been selected as the subject of a city-wide read-a-thon next week.

Windsor Reads will feature public readings of Alexander MacLeod’s bestselling first book of short stories, Light Lifting, short-listed for both the Booker and the Giller Prizes.

“It’s a celebration of Windsor’s literary talent and the written word,” says Sarah Jarvis, a volunteer with Literary Arts Windsor. “We’re bringing book readings to where Windsor’s citizens live, work, study -- and even heal.”
