Exciting Fall List
While we are enjoying summer here at Great Plains, fall is on our mind. We have strong list of books set to hit the shelves of your favourite local shop!
Crime writer Mike McIntyre looks back at his 20 years covering the beat while historian Matt Komus is set to spook us with tales from the heart of the continent. Ghosts are also haunting our Teen Fiction imprint with a sharp novel from Natasha Deen. Enfield & Wizenty will publish short story collections from two fine literary writers, Deborah-Anne Tunney and Elaine McCluskey .
See all of our Fall 2014 titles right here on our website and in our Fall 2014 catalogue!
Chistopher Dafoe in Winnipeg to launch In Search of Canada
Christopher Dafoe returns to Winnipeg to launch In Search of Canada: The Early Years of John Wesley Dafoe at McNally Robinson on June 26th. The book was reviewed in the June 21st edition of the Winnipeg Free Press by Gerald Flood, who notes that “In Chris’ able hands [the biography] never reads like history. Rather, it reads, as [Chris] intended, as the story of a remarkable young man who accomplished greatness”.
Join us at 7pm for the launch of this exciting biography of one of Canada’s most iconic journalists!
Congratulations to John Toone, whose comic guide-book, Fishin’ For Dumbasses, has been a steady feature on the McNally Robinson Bestsellers list since its launch in May!
Not just one but two Great Plains titles are currently bestsellers in Alberta! Edmonton authors Gail Sidonie Sobat and Spyder Yardley-Jones launched their graphic novel Jamie’s Got a Gun at the Roxy Theatre in Edmonton last month. Fans of Alberta author Lee Kvern’s 7 Ways to Sunday can catch the author at Cafe Books in Canmore on Wednesday, June 11th and at Sunworks Home and Garden in Red Deer on Friday, June 20.
