Pangnirtung Youth Council Book Club

Or whatever it has to be called.

Hmmm... I'm not really sure where to start.

Should I rejoice? I think I have to. Woohoo. Books. That's where I'll start, from books. I used to have many books. Not anymore. At best I have at least twenty books.

Since I've been living in Pang, I keep wanting books. Shit, I sound like I'm on a high horse, or a born-again Eskimo. I'm not saying books make you smart or make you understand right away, but to have the comfort of books and to be literate increases the joy of self-education. To learn and be amused at what you've learn is awesome. Anyways, I'm sad to say books are not "everywhere" around here.

So, to change that situation, or to try and change that situation, the Pangnirtung Youth Council will provide space to have a book club in Pang. And as part of the goal, a bookshelf has to be filled from top to bottom, to start off the project.

As the collection progresses, it is hoped that there will be reading nights for people of all ages, from the youngest to the oldest, in any language possible.

I'll provide more details as I know more about the club. What time and location and so on.

Any help from anyone will be greatly appreciated and we will try to assist you in every possible way. If you want to help, email me at pangniqtucker@gmail.com.

The benefits are invaluable. A reading society is a responsive society towards itself.

You know, I bet we will start a local newspaper one of these days. reported and read by the people of Pang.

Let's help each other through small acts. Donate a book.

Hey Tommy - i like your blog & i like your style.

I've got some zines i can reproduce and send to you in Pang if you're interested.

Probably not tough enough to survive the youth centre - but i'm willing to pass on some literature.

Let me know if you're interested!

I've been snubbed!!! This appeal for book donations is a hoax!!

Tommy Eh said...

What the hell.

um, nunawhaa, i am very sorry you feel that way. unlike you, i guess, my summer is filled with activity. activity that involves visiting friends and family, going out hunting with brothers, activity involving being outside, not inside. which i have not done in a long time, while i live in ottawa. so you have not been snubbed.

and when i am inside, this blog is not my dedication, it is hobby, less much the comments that i receive. if you notice, i rarely comment on posts.

so, since you declare this a hoax, i rather don't want your books anymore. i think that was pretty rude. i hope you really are in a small arctic community with limited internet connections (iqaluit, rankin, and cambridge don't count) and understand that blogging is not the first priority.

and as you must also realize, the book club is a long term project, and is not in any rush at all. books if taken cared enough will survive many a good many years. and basically I'm kinda pissed for you to say such words. if you are not offended enough, you can either send them to me at
