On The Same Page 2012-13 continues! This annual project of The Winnipeg Foundation and the Winnipeg Public Library encourages all Manitobans to read, and talk about, the same book at the same time. We’ve been busy distributing free copies of the book Manitobans chose to read — Manitowapow: Aboriginal Writings from the Land of Water — across the province, and now it’s time for special events.

The Manitowapow “mini-tour” kicked off last week with a gathering at Millennium Library. Despite the -30 windchill there was a great turnout to hear Rosanna Deerchild and Duncan Mercredi read their funny, moving, and powerful works.

Join us tonight, Tuesday, January 29, in the Atrium of McNally Robinson Booksellers  at 7 p.m. to hear contributors Gregory Scofield & David McLeod. Then, Kate Vermette & David Robertson will be at Sir William Stephenson Library (765 Keewatin Ave.) on Tuesday, February 12 at 7 p.m.

The editors of Manitowapow, Warren Cariou & Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair, are joining us for each of these events. Warren and Niigaan will also be travelling to The Pas and Norway House in early February to host readings with contributors from those communities – watch Facebook for more!
