Michael Van Rooy: Book Project

It’s About the Stories . . .
It’s Always About the Stories!

Winnipeg has produced some of the best writers in the world and here’s the proof!

To celebrate Winnipeg’s well-earned designation as Cultural Capital of Canada for 2010 we have chosen books by Winnipeggers to offer to other Winnipeggers. These are interesting, smart, funny, touching, scary . . . just plain good books! Fiction, non-fiction, it’s all here. And there is something for both the dedicated and casual reader!

There are several copies of each of these books and we are giving them away to anyone on a first come, first served, basis. There are only three things we ask in return:

- First: Read the book! If you decide it’s not for you then hand it back or hand it forward to someone who might like it!

- Second: Tell us what you think of the book! Write us a letter, send us an email or go onto Facebook and write what you think! Tell us you love the book or you hate it, whatever. We want to know!

- Third: When you’re done with the book, pass it along to someone, anyone, with the same instructions. Share the wealth, share the stories.

Opinions and reviews will all be posted anonymously on the Facebook page for everyone to read!
