This Thursday, May 2 at 7:30 we are so very excited to welcome Robert Herjavec to the store. This event is co-presented by our friends at HarperCollins Canada and CBC Manitoba. Marcy Markusa of Information Radio 89.3 FM/990 AM will be on hand to host.
In his bestselling business book Driven: How to Succeed in Business and in Life, Robert Herjavec, the former co-star of CBC TV's Dragons' Den and current co-star of ABC TV's Shark Tank, urged his readers to take risks, take control of their lives, and stay true to their own visions. Now, in this inspirational follow-up, Herjavec wants to push his readers even further towards greatness.
Whether you are seeking to build the next big company in communications technology, to become the most respected teacher in your educational system, or to make a lasting impact as an artist in your field, the most important decision you can make, according to Herjavec, is to reject mediocrity. In the long run, "good enough" is never good enough, whether in our personal lives or in our careers.
Drawing on anecdotes from his own life and from the lives of celebrity friends such as Oprah, Georges St-Pierre and Celine Dion, Herjavec delivers valuable life lessons that promise to guide readers to greater happiness and success.Categories: Authors, Store News, Winnipeg, Event News

Written by Julie E. Czerneda.
Maps. Ah, maps. I'll confess at the onset I'm not one of those readers who pour over maps and consult them as they read -- unless I'm confused. Even then, it's been my experience that if the written description of a place confuses me, the map's not going to help much.
As a writer, however, I constantly doodle little sketches to keep me honest, from remembering who sits where around a boardroom table, to ensuring a chase scene doesn't have everyone crash into a wall. Unless I intended that. For A Turn of Light I intended a very strong sense of place, both around my characters and in the world outside the story setting. That meant knowing it myself.
Which meant committing maps. Oh my. Hadn't done that before.Categories: Authors, SciFi & Fantasy, Saskatoon, Winnipeg

"It's important to get somehow into the mind and make it move somewhere it has never moved before."
"Some years ago I wrote a book about a boy named Geryon who was red and had wings and fell in love with Herakles. Recently I began to wonder what happened to them in later life. Red Doc> continues their adventures in a very different style and with changed names. To live past the end of your myth is a perilous thing."
- Anne Carson
