The County Reads: JC Sulzenko Presented ALL THE COLOUR IN THE WORLD April 18 in Picton

JC was delighted to be one of five debaters in this year’s The County Reads on April 18 in Picton, Prince Edward County.

On the eve of the Authors Festival, the in-person audience enjoyed hearing debaters argue why their Canadian book published during the last 5 years should be read by everyone in the County.  The audience then voted via secret ballot and chose?

NOT JC’s selection, C.S. Richardson’s All the Colour in the World.  “I chose to champion All the Colour in the World, a finalist for the 2023 Giller Prize, because I couldn’t put it down. And it’s not a whodunnit,” JC explained. She suggested the book is not only a good story but is innovative in the way it uses facts and tidbits from history, the arts, science, culture and literature to illuminate and illustrate, to inform the story and its characters. And in the sensuous way it incorporates the colour palette.

Here’s a link to the event on as reported by the Picton Gazette today: 

JC congratulated winning debater Ernie Margetson, whose title Where the Falcon Flies by Adam Shoalts, won the day. That author will read at the Picton Branch of the Library later in May.
