One Book One Caledon 2018
The title chosen for One Book One Caledon is Bellevue Square. Author Michael Redhill won the 2017 Scotiabank Giller prize for this novel about a young woman, Jean Mason, who is a bookstore owner in Toronto's Kensington Market neighbourhood. She learns that she has an apparent doppelganger named Ingrid Fox in the market's park, Bellevue Square, and becomes obsessed with finding the woman.
