White Pine Spotlight: A Thousand Nights by EK Johnston


A Thousand Nights by EK Johnston

  • A solid – and decidedly feminist – take on Sheherazade and the 1,001 Arabian nights.  This is a book that should be read.
  • Girl power rules and, ultimately, the day – indeed, the kingdom – is saved.
  • Also the “blending” of the mystical/religious/political/scientific elements – past and present – is skillfully done (as was similarly done in The Story of Owen, by the same author).

Read the review at Quill and Quire.


  • Check out Forest Fridays, virtual visits with featured authors.  We will be hosting a couple of them here at ESA.
  • Students who would like to join us at the Festival of Trees, at Harbourfront, on Tuesday May 16th should see Ms. Wray in the Library.
  • Permission forms will be available closer to the date.
