Library chooses book by Emily Austin

To The Haldimand Press

HALDIMAND — Haldimand County Public Library’s One Book One Haldimand program is back for 2022 with Everyone In This Room Will Someday be Dead, written by Canadian author Emily Austin, who explores the human condition using a blend of deadpan humor and observation.

An annual favourite, the program encourages individuals across Haldimand County to read a selected Canadian title and join the author and other community members for an evening of exciting discussion.

Copies of Everyone In This Room Will Someday Be Dead are available at your local Haldimand County Library branch in print format, from the library’s CloudLibrary, and Libby digital services in e-book and e-audio formats. Residents can visit their local branch or the library’s website to borrow a copy or call 289-674-0400 to reserve one.

A virtual author visit will take place online over Zoom on Thursday, November 10 at 7 p.m. Participants will enjoy a short reading, a book talk, and a Q&A session facilitated by library staff. A library membership is not required to join the discussion.

To register, visit or call your local branch at 289-674-0400 or email the library’s outreach coordinator at 


and indicate “OBOH” in your email’s subject line.
