Join Mai Nguyen on February 6, 2024, for a conversation about her new book, Sunshine Nails. This fun and funny, but not frivolous, tale of about a Vietnamese Canadian family in Toronto, who must fight to protect their nail salon against gentrification in the form of a luxurious chain salon. Sunshine Nails explores generation gaps, work and making a home in a new country.

By the Lake Book Club offers six Tuesday-night events, between February and December featuring leading Canadian authors in conversation with Humber College graduates and alumni. Each in-person event includes a reading, discussion, audience Q&A, book-signing and American sign language interpretation. Virtual events are subtitled live and provide online viewing and audio.

By The Lake Book Club events are held at the Assembly Hall, in the heart of South Etobicoke. A virtual only ticket is also available. Book your 6-ticket package by February 6 and save!
