2017 has come to a close, and so we would like to reflect back on the wonderful literature that came out of it. Specifically, we want to focus on the bestselling books by Manitoban and Saskatchewan authors, as reported by our Winnipeg and Saskatoon stores respectively.
McNally Robinson is always eager to support Canadian and especially Prairie literature, and it's easy for us to stand behind the books appearing on this year's bestsellers lists. These titles and authors are a glowing selection of Prairie lit, and we're proud to not only carry the books on our shelves but to also have been a part of their history by having hosted many of their launches and signings within our bookstores.
