Volunteer Book Club

Our next volunteer-led book club meeting will be held Wednesday, February 1 at 7:00pm at the Chilliwack Hospice Society office (7112 Vedder Road). The book chosen for this month is The Magician’s Assistant by Ann Patchett. Hard copies and e-book copies are available at the Fraser Valley Regional Library.

“Sabine—twenty years a magician’s assistant to her handsome, charming husband—is suddenly a widow. In the wake of his death, she finds he has left a final trick; a false identity and a family allegedly lost in a tragic accident but now revealed as very much alive and well. Named as heirs in his will, they enter Sabine’s life and set her on an adventure of unraveling his secrets, from sunny Los Angeles to the windswept plains of Nebraska, that will work its own sort of magic on her.”

We hope you can join us, even if you don’t finish (or start) the book. If you have any questions, reach out to Jennifer Dacre, Palliative & Bereavement Services Manager, via email to [email protected]
