Get out and vote for On The Same Page

The beginning of July is one of my favourite times of the year: Canada Day, the start of real summer in Manitoba (usually) – including strawberry season – plus, the  “On The Same Page” shortlist is announced and voting begins!

“On The Same Page” is the province’s biggest book club, now in its sixth year. All Manitobans are invited to read, and talk about, the same book at the same time. Once the title is selected – as voted on by you – book giveaways, author appearances, and other special events get underway.

All Manitobans now have a chance to read the four works on the shortlist and vote for the title they think should be chosen:

sugarbush roadThe House on Sugarbush Road by Méira Cook (Enfield & Wizenty)



LuckyOnes_cover_finalThe Lucky Ones by Anne Mahon (Great Plains Publications)



7 Gen-cover7 Generations by David Alexander Robertson, illustrated by Scott B. Henderson (Highwater Press)



no one must knowNo One Must Know by Eva Wiseman (Tundra Books)




Voting continues until Friday, September 13. You can vote online at or by paper ballot at McNally Robinson and all twenty Winnipeg Public Library branches. When you vote, be sure to enter your name to win a prize package of the four nominated books!

You’ll also get a chance to meet the writers in person at a group reading from all four shortlist titles at McNally Robinson Booksellers (1120 Grant Avenue) at 7 pm on Tuesday, September 10.

I can’t wait to see which book is chosen for the 2013-14 edition of “On The Same Page.” Check back in mid-September to find out!
