Paging all booklovers! On January 25th, at 8 p.m., CBC Radio and McNally Robinson Booksellers invite you to Prairie Ink Restaurant for an evening we're calling: 5 Writers, 5 Readers, 5 Minutes.
Canada Reads 2012 features five non-fiction titles this year, and in our regional warm-up to the national CBC Radio book brawl, five well-known Manitobans have been matched with the five titles. Up to Speed host Larry Updike will invite each reader to share their insights with the audience, each with a unique presentation lasting only five minutes. Well, maybe ten. No debating, no brawling, but plenty of insight, humour and stories.
Find out more about the evening and corresponding Big Ticket Contest that could see one lucky person walk away with the five nominated books and dinner for two at Prairie Ink Restaurant by visiting the CBC Manitoba SCENE website. You can also visit them on Facebook, Twitter and stay tuned to our own front page for a feature interview with all five of the evening's advocates!Categories: Discussions, buzz, Winnipeg, Event News, Contests and Giveaways

Event information below:
This is a special theatrical presentation from esteemed editor, publisher and raconteur Douglas Gibson based around his book Stories About Storytellers: Publishing Alice Munro, Robertson Davies, Alistair MacLeod, Pierre Trudeau, and Others (ECW Press).
Stories About Storytellers follows the legendary Doug Gibson through 40 years of editing and publishing some of Canada?s sharpest minds and greatest storytellers. Gibson is a terrific storyteller himself, and through his recollections we get an inside view of Canadian politics and publishing that rarely gets told. From Jack Hodgins? Vancouver Island to Harold Horwood?s Labrador, from Alice Munro?s Ontario to James Houston?s Arctic, Doug Gibson takes us on an unforgettable literary tour of Canada, going behind the scenes and between the covers, and opening up his own story vault for all to read and enjoy.
Douglas Gibson worked as an editor and publisher from 1968 until he retired from McClelland & Stewart in 2009. His Douglas Gibson Books was Canada?s first editorial imprint and lives on. He travels widely from his Toronto, ON, base.Categories: Site News, Authors, Event News
