April 2015 News:

April is National Poetry Month. Why not kick off spring with some poetry? Stop by the store to see our selection. 

Saturday, May 2 will be the first Authors for Indies Day in Canada. We're working with numerous authors who want to show their support for independent bookshops. Save the date because we'll have some authors dropping in to the store. More info to come. 

Congratulations to one of our favourite authors, Kim Thúy! Her book Ru won Canada Reads. If you haven't read it yet, you must.

Novel Nights will be held Wednesday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m. The book we will be discussing is The Evening Chorus by Helen Humphreys. Set during World War II, the novel is about the bonds and secrets between three members of the same family. James Hunter is shot down and taken captive in a German POW camp. His wife, Rose, has been left on her own at home, but offers to take in James's sister, Enid, when her home is destroyed in the Blitz. Space is limited so reserve your ticket and copy of the book soon.
