Calling all history buffs

7 April 2006

Four local publishers are teaming up to host a Winnipeg Trivia Night for Manitoba Book Week on Wednesday, April 26 at 7:00 p.m. at Baileys Restaurant and Bar, 185 Lombard Avenue.

Audience members will put their wits to the test against five local authors in this Jeopardy-styled event to see who knows the most (or at least the oddest) bits of trivia about our fair city.

The authors are:

  • Jack Bumsted, author of The Dictionary of Manitoba Biography, Fur Trade Wars and numerous other Manitoba history books published by University of Manitoba Press;
  • David Arnason, editor of The Imagined City: A Literary History of Winnipeg published by Turnstone Press;
  • Russ Gourluck, author of A Store Like No Other: Eatons of Winnipeg published by Great Plains Publications;
  • Shelley Penziwol, author of Storm Signals: A History of Weather in Manitoba published by Great Plains Publications; and
  • Ryszard Dubanski, author of Black Teeth and Other North End Souvenirs published by Signature Editions.

So join us for a ton of fun, lots of laughs, and a chance to win some great prizes! Admission is free, but the drinks are not.
