Want to talk books with other book lovers - but without the commitment of a regular book club? Joanne Kelly and McNally Robinson Booksellers are pleased to continue their free bookclub open to all readers in Winnipeg.

The choice for June 2015 is Richard Flanagan’s critically acclaimed and 2014 Man Booker Prize-winning sixth novel The Narrow Road to the Deep North (Vintage). Set in 1943 amidst the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Thai-Burma death railway, this is a novel of the cruelty of war, tenuousness of life and the impossibility of love.

Showing The Plan Man (Peulraenmaen) with English Subtitles.

Jung-Suk (Jung Jae-Young) meticulously plans for everything in his life like waking up at 6:00 AM and then arranging his bed by 6:35 AM. He also suffers from a fear of germs and always carries various disinfectants with him. He works as a librarian. Jung-Suk also has a secret crush on Ji-Won (Cha Ye-Ryun) who works at a convenience store near the library. Ji-Won also has obsessive–compulsive disorders like Jung-Suk.

Jung-Suk finally decides to reveal his feelings to Ji-Won by giving her a diary he has written in daily. To his surprise, Ji-Won is not working that day and a woman named So-Jung (Han Ji-Min) is working there. Jung-Suk panics and leaves the store without his diary. Later, he goes back to get his diary and learns So-Jung will appear at a night club later that night. At the nightclub, Jung-Suk hears So-Jung sing a song called "Plan Man" which describes things he wrote in his diary. Soon, So-Jung asks Jung-Suk to take part in a TV music talent show.

This free screening presented by The Korea Times in association with the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Toronto, The English Language Centre at the University of Manitoba, Sun Life Financial and the Korea Foundation.

An evening with esteemed cookbook author and chef Nongkran Daks, author of Nong's Thai Kitchen (Tuttle Publishing).

In Nong's Thai Kitchen, the master chef and owner of Virginia's renowned Thai Basil Restaurant shares her secrets for creating Thai cuisine's most beloved dishes at home—using ingredients that can be found in most grocery stores. Nongkran teams up with veteran food writer Alexandra Greeley to show readers how to prepare classic Thai recipes, famous for their balance of sweet, sour, salty and hot flavors. Once elusive ingredients are now easily found, making it easy to prepare dishes at home for far less money than they would cost in a restaurant. All the recipes in this essential Thai cookbook are healthy, easy to make and inexpensive, so step into Nong's kitchen and begin a culinary journey to the tropical heart of Asia.

Nongkran Daks is the executive chef and owner of the Thai Basil Restaurant in Chantilly, Virginia. She has taught Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese cooking in Bangkok, Beijing, Honolulu, Vientiane, Laos and Washington, DC. Nongkran is the author of several Asian cookbooks and enjoys sharing the secrets of authentic Thai cooking with students in her cooking classes. Her most popular dish is Pad Thai, and she proved her mastery of it when she won Food Network's Pad Thai Throwdown challenge against celebrity chef Bobby Flay.

Timothy Gwyn was born in Plymouth, England and lived in England, the USA, Canada and Australia. He spent most of his teenage years in Winnipeg, and learned to fly here so that he could pursue the romance of life as a bush pilot. He remains fascinated by “alternative aviation” and flying machines often feature in his writing. Married with an average of two cats, he does some of his best creative thinking on long walks in the woods. This year he has published Science Fiction stories in Antipodean SF and NewMyths.com.

Kate Heartfield is a fiction writer and journalist who now lives in Ottawa, but grew up in St. Andrews, Manitoba and went to high school in Winnipeg. Her science fiction and fantasy stories have appeared recently in Strange Horizons, Podcastle, On Spec, Daily Science Fiction and elsewhere. By day, she’s the opinion editor for the Ottawa Citizen. Her website is heartfieldfiction.com and she is on Twitter as @kateheartfield.

Garry Thomas Morse is the author of four poetry titles and four fiction titles, notably Governor-General’s Award poetry finalist Discovery Passages about his ancestral Kwakwaka’wakw First Nations myth, history, and fallout of the potlatch ban. His forthcoming poetry title is Prairie Harbour, a long poem set between Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Morse will be reading excerpts from The Chaos! Quincunx, a genre-busting speculative fiction series in three books that has received two nominations for the ReLit Award. Each novel in the series is considered “nodal,” and can be read in any order you choose.

Roots & Blues

Sunday wilde is from the wilds of a northern Ontario small town, and has been found sing-ing everywhere from small logging towns at funeral parlours, and blues joints and all the way to large festivals, and bars in bustling metropolises. She is a powerful and intense vo-calist, a rare voice that speaks from the primal soul. Sunday is a songwriter who explores the subjects of grief, addiction, love and the torment of social and family dysfunction. Her lyrics and delivery make it abundantly clear that she speaks from experience and authority.

Ryan Correy -- Speaking & Signing

Thursday Jul 30 2015 7:30 pm - Grant Park in the Travel Alcove, Winnipeg

Speaking & Signing A Purpose Ridden (Rocky Mountain Books).

In the summer of 1996, a father and his 13-year-old son embarked on a 3400 km bicycle tour across Canada. Affectionately known as “Manhood Training,” this unique bonding experience became the inspiration for Ryan Correy to break away from convention and turn a passion for cycling into his purpose in life. The world’s most extreme cycling challenges serve as an evolving proving ground for the young rider. A Purpose Ridden is an honest and often obsessive first-hand account of becoming one of Canada’s most respected adventure cyclists.

The path less travelled begins with a paternal taunt: “We’re close enough to home. If you want, we can call your mother to come and pick you up now.”

Ryan Correy is an Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership graduate who has taken on many of the world’s toughest cycling challenges. In between planning his next adventure, Ryan regularly speaks to groups of athletes about endurance and how to turn passion into purpose. He also serves as the Fueling Guru for Hammer Nutrition Canada—giving advice to amateur and professional athletes alike. Ryan lives in Burlington, Ontario, with his equally ambitious girlfriend, Sarah.
