About the event

BOOK CLUB: All the Colour in the World, by CS Richardson

Please join us for an evening of discussion of colour, history, painting and personal history as we delve into international best-selling Canadian author, CS Richardson's 2023 novel All the Colour in the World.

"Henry, born 1916, thin-as-sticks, nearsighted, is an obsessive doodler—copying illustrations from his Boy’s Own magazines. Left in the care of a nurturing, Shakespeare-quoting grandmother, eight-year-old Henry receives as a gift his first set of colouring pencils (and a pocket knife for the sharpening). As he commits these colours to memory—cadmium yellow; burnt ochre; deep scarlet red—a passion for art, colour, and the stories of the great artists takes hold, and becomes Henry’s unique way of seeing the world."
