Celebrating Stories and Music

Mark your calendars we are hosting the 7th annual Celebrating Stories and Music on Thursday, April 4 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

We are pleased to feature STORIES with Gordon Goldsborough with an evening of storytelling based on his book “Abandoned Manitoba: From Residential Schools to Bank Vaults to Grain Elevators” a runaway success in 2016.  Gordon returns with more compelling abandoned sites across Manitoba in his new book “More Abandoned Manitoba: River, Rails and Ruins”.  Join Gordon as he discusses his adventures across our province.

Plus…MUSIC with Paul McIntosh, a singer-songwriter with deep roots in Lac du Bonnet, Paul’s music reflects his varied passions. From agriculture to politics; his stories bring to life the beauty romance and tribulations of life on the family farm. With his eye to the personal and the “heart” of a story, his music will draw you in and make you part of his world.

We hope you can join us for this lovely evening of Stories and Music.  Refreshments will be served and this event is free and open to everyone.

New Fiction

New from Ann Cleves are the ingenious psychological suspense series about Private Investigator Vera Stanhope in Silent Voices, The Glass Room, Harbour Street and The Seagull.  In Silent Voices, Vera pulls her team together to investigate a body found in the steam room of her local pool.  In The Glass Room she works with Sergeant Joe Ashworth to hunt for a murderer who has turned killing into an art form.  Harbour Street follows her working to find a killer who has fatally stabbed a passenger on the busy Metro.  The cold case in The Seagull opens up Vera’s past to collide with her present as she faces the possibility that her father was involved in the case of a dead wheeler dealer.

Lars Kepler continues the Joona Linna bestseller series in The Rabbit Hunter.  Joona Linna must catch a disturbed predator, whose trail of destruction leads back to one horrific night of violence – with consequences more terrifying than anyone could have imagined.

Darwin Little gives us The Mica, the first in the Zack Starr series.  Zack Starr is an agent with the Canadian Security Intelligence Services imbedded with the United States Homeland Security.
