Hi everyone! My name is Laura, and I am excited to join the Whodunit team as the new Sales Assistant. I am about to begin my graduate program at the University of Manitoba in Archival Studies stream of the History department. I completed my Honours degree in History at the University of Winnipeg in 2016.

I particularly enjoy reading espionage and detective procedurals. This is largely due to my childhood consumption of the Nancy Drew series and Charlie’s Angels’ reruns, but I have branched out since then! I always like to find something new, so let me know your favourite authors and series next time you’re in!

Announcements: Canadian Independent Bookstore Day, Farewell Sam, and Our Upcoming Move - The Missing Clue - April 2018

STORE EVENT - Canadian Independent Bookstore Day - April 28th

For the past few years, we have been thrilled to be included in the celebration of bookselling that was held at the end of April called "Authors for Indies".  Well, this event is evolving, and will now be called "Canadian Independent Bookstore Day".  This year it will be on the 28th of April, and there will be authors, and giveaways, and treats, and all sorts of things that you will need to stay tuned to your email, and our social media to find out more about!

Good-bye and Good luck to Sam

It is with a bittersweet feeling that we are saying goodbye to Samantha Wigston.  We know that many of you have also had very positive experiences on the phone and in the store with Sam, and we have enjoyed having her here this autumn and winter.  Sam is heading west, in an effort to reach her goal of living in Vancouver, and we wish her the best of luck!

Store Moving News - Quick FAQ

For those who have missed our posters, Michael's appearances on the radio, or the headline from February's newsletter, we are moving to 163 Lilac St this summer [yes, that's next door].

For those who want to know more, we do too.  However, the reason that we cannot be more specific about when is that we in fact do not know ourselves Beyond Flowers, who are moving out, have had a number of delays with the renovations on their new location, which have made precise dates difficult for both they and us. Nor do we know how long the renovations to the space will take once they have moved out.

What we DO know is that we will be open at 165 Lilac until it is time for us to move the books next door.  How that will happen, and whether we will be accepting the many kind offers of assistance that you have provided, will be answered in June's newsletters.
