I shall attend and applaud the Manitoba Book Awards! You should come too. My book  John Paizs’s Crime Wave (U of Toronto P, 2014) is shortlisted for the Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award/ Prix littéraire Carol-Shields de la ville de Winnipeg, so you can sit on the edge of your seat! The full list of shortlisted books is here. A 1920s theme, if you want to dress up (not necessary). Free, but RSVP.
