Earlier this week, players from the Manitoba Moose visited Winnipeg schools as part of their Stick to Reading program, a celebration of I Love To Read Month sponsored by McNally Robinson.
As you can see in these photos, Josh Morrissey and Eric Comrie visited Governor Semple School to read, discuss literature and hockey, and sign some books and jerseys. And McNally co-owner Chris Hall was on hand with some goodie bags for the class.
As part of Stick to Reading, the Moose are also collecting new and used children's books to give to families and schools in need. Donations can be dropped off at our Grant Park bookstore. When you donate, you will be given a buy-one-get-one-free voucher for tickets to the Manitoba Moose season closer game on March 28th, as well as a ballot for a chance to win a signed Josh Morrissey jersey.
Thanks to the Manitoba Moose for arranging Stick to Reading, and a big thank you to everyone who has donated books to the cause.

Last night, the Winnipeg Blues faced off against the Neepawa Natives in the last game of their season, which also happens to be their annual Read & Run game. Here we see the puck drop, overseen by McNally Robinson co-owner Chris Hall, which led to a 3-2 win for the Blues.
In celebration of I Love To Read Month, the Winnipeg Blues visited schools throughout February to read to classes and encourage them in physical activity. Each school was also entered into a draw to win a book donation courtesy of McNally Robinson, and the winner was selected at last night's game.
Congratulations to Bairdmore Elementary School, who will receive $1000 worth of books for their library!

Robert J. Sawyer is one of Canada’s most successful science fiction writers. He is the only Canadian (and one of only 8 writers in the world) to have won all three of the top international awards for science fiction: the 1995 Nebula Award for The Terminal Experiment, the 2003 Hugo Award for Hominids, and the 2006 John W. Campbell Memorial Award for Mindscan. A passionate advocate for science fiction, Sawyer teaches creative writing and appears frequently in the media to discuss his genre. He prefers the label “philosophical fiction,” and in no way sees himself as a predictor of the future. His mission statement for his writing is “To combine the intimately human with the grandly cosmic.”
In his new novel, Quantum Night, experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying psychopaths. But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim discovers that he has lost the memories of a six month period of his life from twenty years previously, a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.
Spoiler alert: Part of the book is set in Saskatoon and Winnipeg, and even includes a scene at a McNally Robinson bookstore.Categories: Authors, SciFi & Fantasy, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Author of the Month

Throughout the month, the Winnipeg Blues will be visiting schools across Winnipeg to exercise both the minds and bodies of students with their Read and Run program. Players from the Blues will be reading to classes, answering their questions about hockey, and then leading each class in a run. Each school will also be entered in to a draw to win a donation of books from McNally Robinson for their library.
Meanwhile, the Manitoba Moose will be celebrating with their Stick to Reading initiative. Students and teachers from Winnipeg schools can enter for their chance to win a visit from Moose players, where the players will interact with the students and read to them in their classroom. For more information about how schools can enter, visit the Moose website here.
The Manitoba Moose will also be accepting donations of new or gently used children's books to give to schools and community services. The donations can be dropped off at our Grant Park bookstore, and for each donation you will receive a buy-one-get-one-free voucher for tickets to the Stick To Reading Moose game on March 28th, as well as a ballot for a chance to win a signed Josh Morrisey jersey.
Thank you to the Winnipeg Blues and the Manitoban Moose for taking such a keen interest in supporting literacy and helping to foster a better future for our students. McNally Robinson is eager and proud to sponsor their cause.Categories: Store News, Winnipeg, Contests and Giveaways, Ongoing Kids Events in Winnipeg
