Tonight, Wednesday March 21, we are thrilled to welcome Irshad Manji here at our store at 7:00 pm for a very special conversation with Marilou McPhedran, followed by a Q&A and book signing.
Irshad is in Winnipeg to promote the paperback publication of her latest book, Allah, Liberty and Love, and this should prove to be a very interesting evening indeed.
Irshad Manji teaches moral courage at New York University's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. A Globe and Mail columnist, she is also a scholar with the European Foundation for Democracy. Her #1 Canadian bestseller, The Trouble with Islam Today: A Wake-Up Call for Honesty and Change, earned international recognition and inspired Manji's Emmy-nominated PBS film, Faith Without Fear. The New York Times has called her "Osama Bin Laden's worst nightmare" while the Jakarta Post in Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country, has identified Irshad Manji as one of three women creating positive change in contemporary Islam.
Irshad is joined in conversation this evening by Prof. Marilou McPhedran, head of The University of Winnipeg Global College and an international human rights lawyer.
Seating is limited, so please arrive early if you want to be assured of a seat.Categories: Winnipeg, Event News

Paging all booklovers! On January 25th, at 8 p.m., CBC Radio and McNally Robinson Booksellers invite you to Prairie Ink Restaurant for an evening we're calling: 5 Writers, 5 Readers, 5 Minutes.
Canada Reads 2012 features five non-fiction titles this year, and in our regional warm-up to the national CBC Radio book brawl, five well-known Manitobans have been matched with the five titles. Up to Speed host Larry Updike will invite each reader to share their insights with the audience, each with a unique presentation lasting only five minutes. Well, maybe ten. No debating, no brawling, but plenty of insight, humour and stories.
Find out more about the evening and corresponding Big Ticket Contest that could see one lucky person walk away with the five nominated books and dinner for two at Prairie Ink Restaurant by visiting the CBC Manitoba SCENE website. You can also visit them on Facebook, Twitter and stay tuned to our own front page for a feature interview with all five of the evening's advocates!Categories: Discussions, buzz, Winnipeg, Event News, Contests and Giveaways
