More on Manitoba Reads long list for The Knife Sharpener’s Bell

Manitoba Reads Longlist: The Knife Sharpener’s Bell has been long-listed for Manitoba Reads. The Winnipeg International Writers Festival, THIN AIR, has teamed up with CBC Manitoba SCENE and McNally Robinson Booksellers for the second annual Manitoba Reads, a made-in-Manitoba book celebration in the spirit of Canada Reads, Canada’s biggest battle of the books. . …  A panel of experts has selected 12 great Manitoba titles and The Knife Sharpener’s Bell has made the list! Readers anywhere in Canada or the world can  vote on their favourite to help decide what is the best Manitoba book for summer reading. Voters have from now until August 12, 2012 to choose four favourites, and those four final titles that receive the most votes will be pitched by a panel of literary pros and keen advocates in front of a live audience on Friday, September 21 2012 at the Centre culturel francais as the kick -off to THIN AIR 2012. After that debate, on-line voting will open again, with the winning title and a portion of the live debate being aired on CBC’s Weekend Morning Show on Sunday, September 23, 2012. The initial audience poll, which runs from July 24 through August 12, has a great prize pack—$150 in gift cards from McNally Robinson, a couple of THIN AIR Festival Passes, and some cool CBC merch.
