Anne Mahon's collection of African refugee stories, The Lucky Ones, presents personal accounts of loss, bravery, and the resilience needed to begin again in a new country. A wide assortment of men and women ranging in age from four to 73 represent a variety of African countries and backgrounds. These compelling tales span their experiences from their African birth countries to their new home, in Manitoba inspired with the uplifting truth of their unbreakable human spirit. At the same time, they offer valuable insights, challenge assumptions, and encourage understanding.
Join us tonight, May 7th, in our Winnipeg store for the launch of The Lucky Ones. The event begins at 7:00 pm in the Atrium.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Event News
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
