The Chief Factor’s Daughter featured in Booksmack

The Chief Factor’s Daughter was a favourite pick at the Greater Victoria Public Library’s Booksmack event at the Belfry this spring. Librarians give speed reviews of their favourite books. This looks like a fun event, where librarians also showcase their sense of humour! I’ll get to one in future…
