Book of the Month

Our 'Book of the Month' is a great read that we want to recommend to you... It might not be on the bestsellers' lists; it might not be a movie-tie-in edition of the latest blockbuster; it might not even be from an author (or publisher) that you even recognise. It will, however, be a book that our buyers and our staff recommend for its wit, its erudite nature, its beauty and literary lyricism.

The Freedom of Birds

by Stephanie Parkyn

Hooray! The author is giving a talk at Dunedin City Library on Thursday 10 February 2022 - keep an eye out on our facebook page and the Library website for details!

Remi Victoire is the golden child among all the theatre orphans; he dreams of a life on a Paris stage. But when this future is stolen from him, Remi and his faithful friend Pascal turn their backs on Paris forever. With Saskia, a runaway orphan girl, Remi and Pascal form a performing troupe, travelling through the fairytale lands that are home to the Brothers Grimm, before finding a safe haven in Venice.
As Napoleon's vast Empire crumbles, the French storytellers discover that Paris itself is now at risk of invasion and they fear for the loved ones they have left behind.
By the bestselling author of  'Josephine's Garden' and 'Into the World'
