Anita Daher Hybrid Book Launch

Tuesday May 03 2022 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium, Streaming on YouTube

Join us as we celebrate the launch of Anita Daher's new middle grade novel Peanut Butter and Chaos: The Mythic Adventures of Samuel Templeton (Yellow Dog). This event features a reading and a conversation hosted by Colleen Nelson.

The launch will be hosted live in the Atrium of McNally Robinson Booksellers, Grant Park and also available as a simultaneous YouTube stream. The video will be available for viewing thereafter. Before arriving, please review details of how to attend physical events here at the store.

When twelve-year-old Sam is struck by a bolt of lightning out of a clear blue sky, he suddenly sees everything in pixels. His life is further upended by Flum, a non-binary being from a parallel world, a missing neighbour, and astonishing powers that may not last long. Science and magic collide as Sam races to solve a mystery and help Flum return home. But what happens when solving one mystery sparks another? Peanut Butter and Chaos is a middle grade fantasy grounded in science.
