Here we are at the end of another week. So here are some of our weekly updates from the past seven days.
|New Releases from the past seven days||Bestsellers|
|> Fiction books||> Winnipeg Bestsellers based on this week's sales|
|> Non-Fiction books||> Saskatoon Bestsellers based on last week's sales|
|Some highlights of the week|
|• New Releases: Early this week The Journey Prize Stories #25 arrived in-store. We're always fond of Canadian writing, particularly when it comes to collections such as the Journey Prize Stories, though we're especially excited for #25 because our very own Steven Benstead is one of the featured authors! Steven's story, "Megan's Bus", is right smack-dab in the middle of the book, and we're delighted to see it there. (By the way, Steven will be signing copies of The Journey Prize Stories #25 in both of our stores: in Winnipeg on October 19th, and in Saskatoon on November 2nd.)|
|• New Releases/Bestsellers: The House of Hades, book four of the Heroes of Olympus series, was released to much fanfare this week. In a matter of three days the book leapt up to #1 on our weekly Winnipeg bestsellers list for Young Readers!|
|• New Releases/Bestsellers/Events: This past Wednesday we unveiled our photography collection, Winnipeg by Winnipeg: Images of the City by Its Citizens, in a launch at our Grant Park store. The event was huge: our store was filled to bursting with excited photographers whose work was featured in the book, as well as a number of friends and family. It was a wonderful turnout -- which helped push the book up to #2 on our Hardcover Non-Fiction bestsellers list in Winnipeg. Winnipeg by Winnipeg is now available for purchase in both our Grant Park and Saskatoon stores.|
|• Bestsellers: Released last week, and already on the weekly bestsellers list for Paperback Fiction: Chadwick Ginther's Tombstone Blues. Big surprise, eh?|
|• Bestsellers/Events: Carol Bowyer Shipley, one of our self-published authors (who had her book designed and printed in-store on our Espresso Book Machine), was in our Grant Park store on Tuesday to launch Love, Loss, and Longing: Stories of Adoption. The turnout was great, with most of Ms. Shipley's books selling that very evening! The success of the launch propelled Love, Loss, and Longing onto our weekly Bestsellers list for Non-Fiction Paperbacks.|
|Next week we've got a couple of huge events that we've been looking forward to for months:|
| • Chadwick Ginther and the launch of Tombstone Blues:
Happening this coming Tuesday, October 15th, at 7:00 pm in our Grant Park store. Many of our booksellers were happy to get their hands on their own copy of Tombstone Blues when the novel was released last week, and now we're all excited to have Chadwick back in our store to discuss the book and sign copies. Everyone is welcome and invited to attend!
| • An Afternoon with Margaret Atwood:
On Wednesday, October 16th, at 2:00 pm Ms. Atwood will be in our Grant Park store to hold conversation (as well as sign copies!) of her new novel, MaddAddam, which was released in late August. Terry MacLeod, host of the Weekend Morning Show on CBC Radio One, will be hosting the event. We encourage everyone to stop by, listen to the discussion, and say hi to Ms. Atwood, because it's not everyday that one of Canada's most prolific authors is here to visit!
This morning we wake to the amazing news that Alice Munro has won the Nobel Prize for Literature. She is the first Canadian to ever win and only the 13th woman to win the award. The Swedish Academy announced the decision Thursday, calling the 82-year-old author from Wingham, Ont., a "master of the contemporary short story." A hearty congratulations, Ms. Munro, from McNally Robinson Booksellers.

Tonight we proudly unveiled our photography book, Winnipeg by Winnipeg: Images of the City by Its Citizens, with a launch in our Grant Park store.
Often when we host a book launch, the book in question has already been released, sometimes for a few days or even several weeks. In the case of Winnipeg by Winnipeg, the book was unveiled for the first time to the public tonight. Our guests, many of whom had their photos included in the book, had their first glimpse of the finished product -- and I can safely say the reception was grand. We had a packed house, and the photographers were all excited to receive their own copies of the book.
In the meantime, Winnipeg by Winnipeg: Images of the City by Its Citizens is available now for purchase! Find it in both our Grant Park and Saskatoon stores, or buy it right here on our website. Contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore to check availability and to have a copy held just for you.Categories: buzz, Store News, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Event News
Prairie writing is more fascinating and prolific than ever. Just look at these new and upcoming releases:
After beating back the might of Surtr in Ginther's 2012 debut, Thunder Road (winner of the 2013 Mary Scorer Award and nominated for the 2013 Aurora Award), Ted Callan is getting used to his immortal powers. He's going to need them. In Tombstone Blues, Thor is back and coming for his hammer. If he gets it, it might just be the beginning of hell on earth.
Join us on Tuesday, October 15th, for the launch of Tombstone Blues in our Winnipeg store! That's happening at 7:00 pm in our Atrium. Show up early to get a good spot! In the meantime, contact us to put in a pre-order for the novel.
In The Wittenbergs, the first novel by the award-winning poet and fiction writer, a family is assailed on all sides by endless troubles. Only the oldest Wittenberg, the matriarch who holds the key to the family's Mennonite past, can lead them along the Dnieper River and toward a better tomorrow.
An award-winning novelist and editor, David Arnason is also one of the most prolific short story authors on the prairies. Over a lifetime of writing, he has crafted some of the most memorable short stories in the Canadian literary canon. Now for the first time the very best of Arnason's stories have been compiled into a single volume: Selected for You: The Stories of David Arnason.
Selected for You: The Stories of David Arnason will be released on November 1st. For now, we're happy to take pre-orders for the collection. Simply contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore.
