STEPHEN GILL PRESENTS BOOKS TO CORNWALL LIBRARY

 

Stephen Gill presented some of his books to Cornwall Public Library on September 11, 2015. The presentation of the books included three books by himself, a selection of critical studies on his books by professors of English Literature, and translations of some of his books in Romanian language. The books he authored before 2009 were presented on March 4 of that year to the same local public library. CEO Dawn Kiddle said on that day that the library had to do something to honour Stephen Gill.

September 11, 2015 was a gorgeous day also because the sun was at the pinnacle of its beauty when citizens are anxious to bathe in its warmth. The audience was from the different segments of society—from different professions. But there was one factor that was common—there was one factor that bonded them and that factor was their love for libraries— that factor was their love for ideas which rule the world. Stephen Gill added that without ideas-- without books—without libraries, even the beauty—even the grace of the sun was meaningless.

Stephen Gill thanked Cornwall Public Library for providing the cultural needs of the historical city of Cornwall and its surrounding areas. He said, “I undedrstand, a library is a place where citizens find all sorts of ideas. I understand that these are the ideas of thinkers- - these are the ideas of philosophers-- that have been ruling the world in one way or the other. It is not easy to find these ideas and their unimaginable power without their custodians like Dawn Kiddle and Sonja Irving. He thanked them for making it possible for him to present copies of some of his books to these custodians of culture that afternoon.

The evening was kicked off with Canadian National Anthem by Sarita VanDyke, a professional singer and audience participation with a brief talk by Dr. Monica Spolia, a prominent poet and Chief Editor of 'Bharat Times', published from Montreal.

Ms. Sonja Irving, the Librarian and head of the Adult section, thanked the author, hoping that readers will find it easy to obtain books of Stephen Gill locally and out of the town readers through library loan system.

Receptive audience participated by talking about the books of the author, particularly his modern epics. 'The Flame and Amputee', and asking questions about peace. The presentation was closed with nourishing and delicious refreshment provided with the courteously of Shawarma Restaurant of Cornwall.
