Want to talk books with other book lovers – but without the commitment of a regular book club? Shaw TV, Joanne Kelly and McNally Robinson Booksellers are pleased to continue our free bookclub open to all readers in Winnipeg.
The book under discussion tonight is Meg Rossoff’s How I Live Now, the powerful and engaging story of Daisy, the precocious New Yorker and her English cousin Edmond, torn apart as war breaks out in London of a not-so-distant future.
Pick up the book at McNally Robinson, read it over the course of the month and join us this evening for refreshments and discussion! Get in touch with Joanne through e-mail at jmkelly (at) rrc.mb.ca or with John at McNally Robinson at events (at) grant.mcnallyrobinson.ca or by calling 453-0424, ex 227 if you have any questions.

In the beginning, Bob created the heavens and the earth and the beasts of the field and the creatures of the sea, and twenty-five million other species (including lots of cute girls). But mostly he prefers eating junk food and leaving his dirty clothes in a heap at the side of his bed. Every time he falls in love, Earth erupts in natural disasters, and it's usually Bob's beleaguered assistant, Mr. B., who is left cleaning up the mess. So humankind is going to be very sorry indeed that Bob ever ran into a beautiful, completely irresistible girl called Lucy...
