Guy Delisle’s Burma Chronicles selected for PEI’s One Book One Island

For the 2012 edition of One Book One Island, the PEI Public Library Service has selected Guy Delisle’s Burma Chronicles. The 2008 graphic-novel memoir recounts the year the Quebec author lived in Myanmar with his wife, a project manager with Médecins Sans Frontières, and their infant son.

PEI Public Library Service and the provincial government launched the island-wide book club last year. In a press release, tourism and culture minister Robert Henderson says One Book One Island is “a fun way to promote literacy and create a province-wide discussion on reading.

It’s also a boon to the book’s publisher, Montreal’s Drawn & Quarterly: additional copies of the title, both in English and French, will be available at all 26 library branches of the PEI Public Library Service throughout the year.
