In this riveting new thriller, Inferno, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.
In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante's Inferno.
Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante's dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.

May is upon us, meaning plenty of university students are coming to the end of their tour of duty through post-secondary education, ready to put all that learning to use in a career of their choosing. And June is coming up, at the end of which thousands of high school seniors will emerge into the world, diplomas in hand, to face a million opportunities (and perhaps just as many challenges) laid out before them.
You'll want to set them off on the right foot. Dr. Seuss's Oh, The Places You'll Go! is a good start, but better yet would be a gift suited for the personality of the grad you're celebrating.
To that end, Bookish has published a Graduation Gift Guide, outlining a series of books ideal for grads. The list even helps you figure out which book would match the personality of your graduate. You can see the list by clicking here. It's got some great suggestions, and as always McNally Robinson is happy to help you find the titles.

Around the world, fans of the six films (and the entire culture that's been built around them) are rejoicing and celebrating in a variety of ways. Restaurants are preparing Star Wars-themed meals, friends and family are setting down to watch the films marathon-style, and places like Disney World are setting up massive events and festivities to run all day.
At McNally Robinson, we're celebrating the Star Wars saga in the same way that we always do - with plenty of Star Wars-themed merch! Because with us, everyday is Star Wars Day.
Of course we've got Star Wars books - in fact, we've got an entire shelf dedicated to them.

From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new book of essays, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, that takes readers on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences. Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marvelling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist's shop, Sedaris takes us on side-splitting adventures that are not to be forgotten.
It's particularly fitting that this book was released so close to James Duncan's book launch for The Complete Book of North American Owls at our Winnipeg store. Duncan was accompanied on his visit by a live owl, Nemo, and his book has been a bestseller for the past several weeks.
A real owl, an owl specialist, and two owl books - this past month's been a real hoot!Categories: buzz, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, New Releases
