Winnipeg Foundation Gets Readers ‘On the Same Page’

By Brian Schultz

The public can now vote for their favourite book as part of The Winnipeg Foundation’s “On the Same Page” project for 2011-12.

The short list includes “Baldur’s Song” by David Arnason, “Winnipeg 1912” by Jim Blanchard, “Le Soliel du Lac Qui Se Couche/The Setting Lake Sun” by J.R. Léveillé and “Black Bottle Man” by Craig Russell.

An event with all four authors is planned for early September, before voting closes on September 10.

On the Same Page was launched in 2008 to get Manitobans reading, and talking about, the same book at the same time.
