Carissa Halton’s Little Yellow House a Book Club Favourite

Last night, Carissa Halton’s book, Little Yellow House: Finding Community in a Changing Neighbourhood, received a 100% approval rating from all 17 members of an Edmonton book club. Her book introduces readers to a cast of diverse characters in her Alberta Avenue neighbourhood and invites them to consider the social and economic forces that shape and reshape the city.

Carissa Halton joined the group for the discussion and heard how the members connected with each of the 24 essays in the book, on topics ranging from the sex trade, neighbourhood revitalization, and public schools.

A writer, speaker, and board development consultant in Edmonton, Carissa’s lively energy and passion for her community and the ideas presented in Little Yellow House made it an evening to remember.
