Manitoba Reads top eight have been chosen

It took one month and 1700 votes from people in 17 countries, but the results are in!

Of the original 16 titles on the Manitoba Reads roster, only eight remain. Those titles are:
  • Catherine Hunter - The Dead of Midnight
  • Chandra Mayor - All the Pretty Girls
  • David Robertson - The Life of Helen Betty Osborne
  • Gabrielle Roy - Where Nests the Water Hen
  • Wayne Tefs - Bandit
  • Daria Salamon - The Prairie Bridesmaid
  • Carol Shields - Republic of Love
  • Joan Thomas - Reading by Lightning

Now, four panelists will each choose one of the eight remaining titles and prepare to defend their choice at the final THIN AIR 2011 Mainstage on September 24. It's an event you definitely don't want to miss, so be sure to keep checking our website for details about ticket information.

Thank you to everyone who voted for Manitoba Reads, and we can't wait to see what will happen next!
