"Soldier of the Horse" in Winnipeg

 I am happy to report that "Soldier of the Horse" trekked to Winnipeg on April 18th and was very successfully billeted at McNally Robinson's, Grant Park, on Saturday the 20th.The staff had set up a display adjacent to the checkout counters, and it was very gratifying to see how busy the store was, with a constant stream of customers buying all sorts of books.
The store had done an eyecatching poster which I will display soon.
One customer appeared with a book he had been given earlier, which I was only too happy to sign for him, especially as he bought another copy to give to a friend. After I returned home, a gentleman who had read the book (almost without taking a break!) phoned long distance to say how much he had enjoyed it.
Kudos to the staff at McNally Robinson, who made for a very interesting and rewarding two hours meeting readers of all shapes and sizes.
