Happy Hanukkah

by Tyler Vitt - Tuesday, Dec 16, 2014 at 2:49pm

'The Jewish holiday Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, starts the night of Tuesday, December 16. The warm glow of the Hanukkah candles burning is always a special moment. This is part of the holiday season that makes our diverse society so beautiful and truly Canadian.

If you need some gift ideas, McNally Robinson is just the place to go. We have a fantastic selection of Jewish cookbooks. What better way to connect to a holiday than to learn how to make those phenomenal traditional dishes? – and perhaps experimenting with other cultural culinary delights. Among the wonderful books worth exploring is The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home by Nick Zukin. We also have a great selection of literature, including such classics as The Magic Barrel by Bernard Malamud. And, of course, if you need a Hanukkah menorah, we have them right here.'

This piece was guest-written by bookseller John C. If you're looking for more books related to Hanukkah and you're in Winnipeg, John might have a few other suggestions for you.

Holiday ordering & deadlines

by Tyler Vitt - Wednesday, Nov 19, 2014 at 4:59pm

Happy holidays!

The holiday deadlines for special ordering books are approaching. As a rule of thumb, we consider December 10th as the last date when we can order a book and have it arrive before Christmas.

We will still gladly take orders after this date, but we cannot guarantee they will arrive before Christmas.

Nevertheless, we strongly encourage you to get in touch with us soon as possible to specially order books you intend to give as gifts. Some publishers take longer to ship, and weather is always a concern this time of year.

Please contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore if you have any questions, or if you'd like to place an order over the phone. Once we know what book you're looking for and where it's coming from, we can give you an estimate of when it should arrive.
