The Union of SmokersPaddy Scott, author of The Union of Smokers, will be signing in the OBP Pavilion on Thursday at 2:30 PM.

The final day in the life of chain-smoking 12-year-old Kaspar begins with a search for a canary and ends in an ambulance with an almighty “theme essay” on the boy’s lips. Set in the late sixties in small-town Ontario, The Union of Smokers is a heartfelt debut offering up an odd and oddly wise hero.
