Book Launch: The Retreat by Sherri Smith
We are very excited to be hosting the Launch Event for Sherri Smith's new book The Retreat on Tuesday, August 20th at 7pm. Set at a Wellness Retreat and featuring a face paced and twisting mystery, Sherri's new book has already gotten good reviews from places like Time and Publisher's Weekly. We are proud of Sherri's success as a Winnipeg writer and are honoured that Whodunit? is going to be where the Launch takes place. For a chance to celebrate with us, check out our Facebook event, visit the Eventbrite listing for FREE tickets, or call the store. Refreshments will be served, but space will be limited, so don't tarry!
50% Used Book Sale
On the 24th of August last year, we finally received the permit to occupy 163 Lilac! What an incredible year it has been. Memories of that first weekend, however, still haunt Michael, as he and his little band of volunteers spent the weekend moving our entire stock. In an effort to get some of the heaviest offenders off our shelves, we will be having 50% off ALL USED BOOKS from Thursday Aug. 22 - Sunday Aug 25. Come in and stock up for back to school, back to work, or even for winter.
Thin Air Festival Sept 29 (TBC)
We are pleased to announce that we expect to be hosting a Thin Air Writing Festival Event at the end of September. Stay tuned to our social medias, your emails and the festival website for details!
Call for Interest: Toddler Reading Group
Now that we have been in 163 for a year, we are better prepared to offer some of the expanded services that the new space allows. One of the ideas that has been brought up has been to have a bi-weekly event for pre-school children. Our intention is to begin in January 2020 with bi-weekly Wednesday morning readings of some children's classics (and not so classics). If interested in more information, please get in touch!
Children’s Book Cards
Another aspect of our new space is our larger children’s section. To reward those who are buying from that section, we are now offering a stamp card for those books as well. Buy ten, and get $10 off!
Save the Date: Harry Potter Book Night
We will once again be hosting Bloomsbury Publications "Harry Potter Book Night" on Thursday, February 6th 2020. For 2020, the theme will be The Triwizard Tournament. Tickets, and more details will be available in the new year.
