Want to talk books with other book lovers – but without the commitment of a regular book club? Shaw TV, Joanne Kelly and McNally Robinson Booksellers have created a new kind of book club open to everyone in Winnipeg.
We will announce a new book at the beginning of each month on Shaw TV and through McNally Robinson’s The Bookseller newsletter. You simply read the book and show up at McNally's the last Tuesday of the month to talk about the book. You can pick and choose the books you want to read – and the book clubs you want to attend.
In April, conversation centred on Alan Weisman’s The World Without Us, a book that evokes a world from which humanity suddenly disappeared. The title under discussion this evening is Feather Crowns by Bobbie Ann Mason. Set in the apocalyptic atmosphere of 1900 - a time when many Americans were looking for signs foretelling the end of the world - Feather Crowns is the story of a young woman who unintentionally creates a national sensation when she gives birth to the first recorded set of quintuplets in North America.
Pick up the book at McNally Robinson, read it over the course of the month and join us this evening for refreshments and discussion! Get in touch with Joanne through e-mail at jmkelly (at) rrc.mb.ca or with John at McNally Robinson at events (at) grant.mcnallyrobinson.ca or by calling 453-0424, ex 227 if you have any questions.
