Stanley Park comes to Tsawwassen for marathon reading

Literature lovers gathered in the breezeway of Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall on Saturday (Sept. 7) to engage in a marathon reading of Vancouver author Timothy Taylor’s 2001 Giller-nominated debut novel Stanley Park.

Participants each read for 15 minutes as part of a fundraising event for the Delta Friends of the Library. Taylor, whose most recent novel The Rule of Stephens came out last year, was also on hand to sign copies.
