An Evening with Ann-Marie MacDonald

Wednesday Oct 26 2022 7:00 pm - Grant Park in the Atrium, Streaming on YouTube, Winnipeg

Join us for an evening with Ann-Marie MacDonald as she returns to Winnipeg to discuss her eagerly anticipated new book Fayne (Knopf Canada) with host Jen Zoratti of The Winnipeg Free Press. Co-presented by The Winnipeg International Writers Festival.

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

In Fayne, a beloved writer returns with a tale of science, magyk, love and identity set in the late nineteenth century.

Charlotte Bell is growing up at Fayne, a vast and lonely estate straddling the border between England and Scotland, where she has been kept from the world by her father owing to a mysterious condition. Charlotte revels in the moorlands, and has learned the treacherous and healing ways of the bog from the old hired man, Byrn, whose own origins are shrouded in mystery. Charlotte has grown up with the knowledge that her mother died in giving birth to her, and that her older brother, Charles, the long-awaited heir, died soon afterwards. When Charlotte’s appetite for learning threatens to exceed the bounds of the estate, her father breaks with tradition and hires a tutor to teach his daughter “as you would my son, had I one.” But when Charlotte and her tutor’s explorations of the bog turn up an unexpected artefact, her passion for knowledge and adventure will take her to the bottom of family secrets and to the heart of her own identity. 

Ann-Marie MacDonald is an award-winning novelist, playwright, actor, and broadcast host. She is the author of the bestselling novels Fall on Your Knees, The Way the Crow Flies, and Adult Onset.

Wednesday Oct 26 2022 7:00 pm - Online via Zoom, Virtual

Join Random House Group and McNally Robinson Booksellers for an evening with Ina Garten!

“I love you, come for dinner” is more than just an invitation to share a meal, it’s a way to create a community of friends and family who love and take care of each other—and the recipes in Ina Garten’s new cookbook will give you the confidence to create dinners that will bring everyone to your table.

To make life easy Ina relies on a repertoire of recipes that she knows will turn out perfectly every time. In Go-To Dinners, she shares her strategies for making her most satisfying and uncomplicated dinners. You’ll find lots of freeze-ahead, prep-ahead, and simply assembled recipes—along with Ina’s “Two-Fers” guide on turning leftovers into something different (and just as delicious!) the next night. And since no meal can be considered dinner without dessert, she has some sweet suggestions to finish off the evening.

The event will be broadcast via Zoom, and each ticket includes a hardcover copy of Go-To Dinners in addition to event access. Book orders will be fulfilled by our independent bookstore partner, McNally Robinson Booksellers. Pre-order a copy online or instore to enter. Please note we can only accommodate Canadian shipping.

Margaret Macpherson in-conversation with David Carpenter (Hybrid Event)

Thursday Oct 27 2022 7:00 pm - Travel Alcove & YouTube, Saskatoon

Join Margaret Macpherson for the hybrid launch (in person + streaming) of Tracking the Caribou Queen: Memoir of a Settler Girlhood (NeWest Press). With in-conversation host David Carpenter.

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.

In this challenging memoir about her formative years in Yellowknife in the ’60s and ’70s, author Margaret Macpherson lays bare her own white privilege, her multitude of unexamined microaggressions, and how her childhood was shaped by the colonialism and systemic racism that continues today. Macpherson’s father, first a principal and later a federal government administrator, oversaw education in the NWT, including the high school Margaret attended with its attached hostel: a residential facility mostly housing Indigenous children. Ringing with damning and painful truths, this bittersweet telling invites white readers to examine their own personal histories in order to begin to right relations with the Indigenous Peoples on whose land they live. Tracking the Caribou Queen is beautifully crafted to a purpose: poetic language and narrative threads dissect the trope that persisted through her girlhood, that of the Caribou Queen, a woman who seemed to embody extreme and contradictory stereotypes of Indigeneity. Here, Macpherson is not striving for a tidy ideal of “reconciliation”; what she is working towards is much messier, more complex and ambivalent and, ultimately, more equitable.

Raised in Yellowknife, now Denendeh, NWT, Margaret Macpherson has an English Literature degree from the University of New Brunswick and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from UBC, completing the program as a visiting grad student at Edmonton’s University of Alberta. She published a few contract non-fiction books as well as a biography of firebrand Nellie McClung, Voice for the Voiceless, in the early 2000s, but it was the publication of her short story collection Perilous Departures that launched her literary career. Her first novel, Released, was nominated for a Manitoba best book award in 2009, followed by a second novel, Body Trade, which won the De beers NorthWords Prize for Outstanding book in 2012.

Macpherson paints, travels, laughs long and often, and continues to explore and record the mystical communion of living things. She has recently moved to Deep River, in Northern Ontario, to begin her third act with her life partner.

David Carpenter is the author of 14 books, including The Gold and Welcome to Canada. He has received several Saskatchewan Book Awards, including Book of the Year for his memoir A Hunter’s Confession. He is the winner of the Kloppenburg Literary Award, and in 2018, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Saskatchewan. He has hiked, fished, canoed and camped all of his life. He lives in Saskatoon.

When a freak accident leaves him with a permanent disability and no feeling below his left knee, everyone believes Eliezer’s career is over – everyone except his mother, a professional power skating coach. She teaches Eliezer to skate using the muscles in his upper leg, and after two and a half years of operations and rehabilitation, he returns to the rink to become one of Quebec’s elite junior players. Eliezer embarks on a professional career in Europe, eading him to France, Kazakhstan, Slovakia, and to Poland, just a few kilometres from the Auschwitz death camp, haunted by memories of the past. In its stunning conclusion, My Left Skate describes Eliezer’s life in Ukraine and his struggle to escape from war after Russia invades the very region in which he plays.

Anna Rosner is a Toronto teacher and author who has published short-story fiction, numerous scholarly articles and the children’s biography Journeyman: The Story of NHL Right Winger Jamie Leach, which was selected as a “Best Book” by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre and was a finalist for the High Plains Book Award.
