A collection of profiles of African refugees to Manitoba has been selected as this year’s featured book in the On the Same Page initiative, the city has announced.
The Lucky Ones by Anne Mahon was published earlier this year by Great Plains Publications of Winnipeg.
On the Same Page, now in its sixth year, is jointly sponsored by the Winnipeg Foundation and the Winnipeg Public Library.
The program encourages all Manitobans to read, and talk about, the same book at the same time. The program includes book giveaways, author appearances and special events taking place in early 2014.
