Description
Place Settings is the final project of the County of Brant Public Library's 2016-2017 Writer-in-Residence Program. This anthology showcases 16 unique non-fiction pieces by local writers about their personal connections to the County of Brant’s geography and history.

The anthology includes stories that range from the singularity of a park or street to the drama of a storm or the tragedy of buried history. Stories in the work were selected by a blind jury of seven members that included librarians, historians, an editor and designer in addition to the Library's 2016-2017 Writer-in-Residence, Krista Foss. Giller Prize-nominated author John Bemrose provides the book's foreword.

Included in this record are audio recordings of each story, as recorded by the authors themselves.* Please click on the links on the RIGHT-HAND side of this page to hear each recording.

Place Settings was made possible by the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
