Be First Reading Club

by Alexandra K - Tuesday, Jun 05, 2012 at 1:10pm

Come join our Be First Reading Club, a teen book club with a twist! Instead of reading and discussing books that have been out for a while, we read and discuss books that haven't even been published yet.
Upon signing up, you get an Advanced Readers Copy, or ARC, of the selected book. On book club date, make sure you come back to the store to discuss what you've just read with our Winnipeg bookseller, Margaret.

Next Winnipeg Session:

Our next Be First meeting will take place on September 8th at 7:00 PM. We will be reading Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant. There will be a $5.00 registration fee.

Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant (Session on September 8)
Mara wakes in a field of dead grass, a heavy mist pressing down on her. She is terrified, afraid that she is dead. There is a boy in that mist, a beautiful young man dressed in black and able to move effortlessly through space and time. He is the Messenger of Fear. The Messenger sees the darkness in human hearts. He sees the evils done: the destructive lies, the cruelty, the bullying, the violence. And if the world does not bring justice to those who do evil, the Messenger will. He offers the wicked a game. If they win, they go free. If they lose, they will live their greatest fear. Either way, their sanity will be challenged.

It's that time of year once more - the Kids and Teen staff picks have been picked and posted! These are some of our own personal favourites, from fiction to non-fiction, picture books to novels. Many of them are a bit under the radar, and we feel that more people should read them. You'll love them - we promise!

You can see our Staff Picks tables in person upstairs in the kids section of each of our stores.

Find the Saskatoon Staff Picks here, and the Winnipeg Staff Picks here.

Little, Brown releases the cover of The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

by Alexandra K - Tuesday, Jul 03, 2012 at 1:02pm

$36.99 Add to Cart

We are pleased to announce that Little, Brown has just released the cover of J.K. Rowling's newest novel, The Casual Vacancy. You will be able to find the book at a McNally Robinson store near you on September 27th.

When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty fašade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils?Pagford is not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?
