Joanne Jackson Hybrid Book Launch

Tuesday May 17 2022 7:00 pm, Saskatoon, Travel Alcove + YouTube

Join Joanne Jackson for the hybrid launch of her new novel A Snake in the Raspberry Patch.

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

It’s the summer of 1971 and Liz takes care of her four sisters while waiting on the birth of the sixth Murphy child: a boy. And yet something is not right. Adults tensely whisper in small groups, hands shaking. Her younger sister Rose seems more annoying, always flashing her camera and jotting notes in her notepad.


The truth is worse than anyone could imagine: an entire family slaughtered in their home. The small rural town reels in the aftermath. For Liz, these events complicate her already tiring life, and if Rose gets it into her head that she can solve a murder…. The killer must be someone just passing through, a random horror. It almost begs the question: where do murderers live?

A Snake in the Raspberry Patch is Joanne Jackson’s second novel. She lives in Saskatoon with her husband and a border collie named Mick.

A year after the early death of his wife, John Davies comes hesitantly out of retirement to take a job at The Wheaton, a senior's residence. Having resisted 'getting involved' for his entire life, John is immediately out of his comfort zone. The Wheaton is a boundary-free environment, and he is immersed in the kinds of sticky matters he usually does his best to avoid. Surrounded by mortality and the ghosts of regret haunting many of the residents, John begins to do the unthinkable: relate to his fellow creatures and reconsider his past. After a life of being a selfish husband and a distracted absentee father, is it too late to try to make amends?
