Finished in 1947 and lost to readers until now, House of Earth is the only finished novel by the late, legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie. A powerful portrait of Dust Bowl America, it's the story of an ordinary couple in a search for love and meaning in a corrupt world.
Combining the moral urgency of John Steinbeck with the frank eroticism of D. H. Lawrence, House of Earth is a fascinating companion piece to Guthrie's folk anthem "This Land Is Your Land."
In the spring of 1943, during a stint in the Merchant Marine, Jack Kerouac at 21 wrote his first novel. Now, nearly 70 years later, The Sea Is My Brother provides fascinating details and insight into the early life and development of a literary icon.
A clear precursor to his later work, it bears such hallmarks of classic Kerouac as the search for spiritual meaning and the strange, terrible beauty of loneliness.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, New Releases
Happy May Long Weekend!
For the holiday weekend we've got a classic favourite: Lemon Meringue Tarts. Surrounded, if you're curious, with Ispahan Cakes on the right and Mini Apple Pies on the left.

Not only is it the weekend, but it's the long weekend. And not only is it the long weekend, but (unfortunately) it looks like it'll be a chilly, rainy few days. Not so great for people itching to get outside... but it's perfect weather to settle yourself warm and dry inside to play some games.
Our suggestion is the 7 Wonders Board Game by Repos Production. Lately this game -- which is our highlighted game for the months of May and June, as seen in our newsletter -- has been flying off our shelves. We're getting shipments in every week, and those boxes don't sit long in our stores! It's little wonder why: 7 Wonders is one of the most awarded board games in the world!
In 7 Wonders you lead one of the seven great cities of the Ancient world. Exploit the natural resources of your lands, take part in the eternal march of progress, develop your commercial relationships, and assert your military might. Then leave your mark in the history of civilization by building an architectural marvel that will transcend the ages to come!
The game is designed for 2 to 7 players, ages 13 and up. One round typically takes half an hour.
And stay tuned: In the near future we'll be getting the 7 Wonders expansion pack, which (as the name suggests) adds another seven wonders to the game! These additions include the Great Wall of China, Stonehenge, and more. We've got some on order, and we're hoping to get them in stock very soon.
In the meantime, get yourself into the wonderful world of 7 Wonders with the base game! Available in both our Winnipeg and Saskatoon stores.
