Milton Public Library is thrilled to host award-winning Canadian comedian, Mark Critch on Thursday 21 st April at 7pm for a special 2022 One Book, One Milton (OBOM) virtual event.

Mark will take to the virtual stage to discuss his best-selling memoir, Son of a Critch: a childish Newfoundland memoir, Thursday 21 st April at 7pm. Son of a Critch is a hilarious story of family, getting into trouble, and finding one’s place in the world. The book is the winner of the 2019 Margaret and John Savage First Book Award, was shortlisted for the 2019 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize and 2019 Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humor, and was long listed for the 2019 RBC Taylor Prize. His book inspired the popular CBC TV series, Son of a Critch, a coming-of age comedy chronicling the life of his 11-year-old self.

Mark Williams, MPL’s Chief Librarian shares “We are delighted that in order to continue our trend of connecting with as many Miltonians as possible, we have selected a title that is both contemporary and one that, we believe, will resonate with avid readers and those looking to connect with MPL for the first time. We are so excited to be welcoming Mark Critch to Milton as our 2022 OBOM author!”
