The Missing Clue - April 2016 - Upcoming Events

As those of you who have visited us recently will have noticed, we are constantly challenged by the size of the store, and the amount of shelving that it has. Over the next few months, we are going to be embarking on a few projects that we hope will help us increase the useable space. 

Our first project is to change the size of the shelves on the walls in the front of our store to be able to put larger paperbacks on them, and keep more of an author’s books in the same place. 

To celebrate this and to make the transition easier, we are going to have a sale of the books currently on those shelves. From April 1st to 17th, all the paperbacks on those wall shelves will be 15% off (you will not receive stamps for these purchases). Please note this sale will exclude the new release shelves that face the entrance. We hope that you will find something that you will like, or had your eye on, and make it easier for us to change the size of the shelves by having fewer books to move.

We are excited to once again host an event in conjunction with “Authors for Indies”, this year on Saturday, April 30th! Last year, many of you came and enjoyed Catherine MacDonald’s lecture on mystery writing and the historical research behind her series beginning with Put on the Armour of Light.  She will be returning this year, but will not be alone.  We are thrilled to announce that Doug Whiteway, who writes crime fiction as CC Benison, will also be joining us on the 30th!

Whodunit is now a drop off point for Gowns for Grads. If you have a dress that you do not have any further use for that would be appropriate for grad, please consider donating it to this worthy cause. Accessories are also greatly appreciated. More details of this venture, which is an initiative of the Laura Milner White Committee, can be found on Facebook or you can ask us next time you are in the store.

Angela Misri, author of the Portia Adams mysteries, (a Sherlockian pastiche), will be in Winnipeg as part of TD Book week.  We are excited to announce that she will be doing an event at Whodunit on Wednesday, May 11th at 7pm!   Those of you interested in pastiche, in writing for young adults, or just in meeting and hearing from new authors will want to mark this on your calendars.
