This Thursday, May 2 at 7:30 we are so very excited to welcome Robert Herjavec to the store. This event is co-presented by our friends at HarperCollins Canada and CBC Manitoba. Marcy Markusa of Information Radio 89.3 FM/990 AM will be on hand to host.
In his bestselling business book Driven: How to Succeed in Business and in Life, Robert Herjavec, the former co-star of CBC TV's Dragons' Den and current co-star of ABC TV's Shark Tank, urged his readers to take risks, take control of their lives, and stay true to their own visions. Now, in this inspirational follow-up, Herjavec wants to push his readers even further towards greatness.
Whether you are seeking to build the next big company in communications technology, to become the most respected teacher in your educational system, or to make a lasting impact as an artist in your field, the most important decision you can make, according to Herjavec, is to reject mediocrity. In the long run, "good enough" is never good enough, whether in our personal lives or in our careers.
Drawing on anecdotes from his own life and from the lives of celebrity friends such as Oprah, Georges St-Pierre and Celine Dion, Herjavec delivers valuable life lessons that promise to guide readers to greater happiness and success.Categories: Authors, Store News, Winnipeg, Event News

Saskatchewan author Cassie Stocks has been awarded this year's Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Canadian humour writing.
It was Stocks' novel, Dance, Gladys, Dance - the author's first novel - that pulled through against tough competition, including bestsellers such as Terry Fallis' Up and Down and Jonathan Goldstein's I'll Seize The Day Tomorrow, to win the Leacock award and its accompanying $15,000 prize.
So congratulations, Cassie!

The weather's lookin' pretty nice out there. Winds are disappearing, temperatures are rising, snow is melting. People are digging out their Summer moods and Summer gear and getting ready for the warm weather.
Meaning, among other things, it's bicycle season.
It's still gonna be a while before the roads and paths are cleaned and at their best for biking, so in the meantime why not read up before you ride out? We've got plenty of books on bikes, everything from tips on taking care of your wheeled-stallion to memoirs of famous cyclists.
If you're coming to our Winnipeg store, check out our Bicycle display near the stairs leading up to the Kids section. Or there is always the Cycling section located in our Sport-books alcove.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Displays
