Nettie Cronish Signing

Join us on Saturday, March 25 at 3:00pm to welcome cookbook author Nettie Cronish to the store. She will be here to sign copies of her newest cookbook Nourish. Her two previous cookbooks, Everyday Flexitarian and Flex Appeal, will also be available.

About Nourish:

“Eating healthily and well isn’t about a pinch of calcium here and dose of Vitamin C there, it’s about eating whole foods that are rich in nutrients, and no type of food has more readily accessible nourishment than whole, unprocessed foods that are close to nature.Nutritious, inexpensive, tasty and underutilized, legumes like beans, lentils, nuts and seeds are more flexible than their reputation suggests. Vegetarians have been in on the secret for a long time, but everyone should benefit from the nutritional impact of these small wonders. Legumes can be incorporated seamlessly into familiar foods like granola and chili, your morning oatmeal, and the crust on tuna or lamb chops. You do not need to follow a different eating plan for weight control, heart health, hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes or many other health concerns. The very same eating plan-—more whole foods, less processed foods, and more home cooking—is recommended for anyone who wants to be healthy. This book provides dozens of delicious, approachable recipes made with wholesome beans, nuts, seeds and lentils.”

We look forward to seeing you on the weekend!

Chad Pelley Signing

Join us on Saturday, March 4 from 1:00-3:00pm to meet Newfoundland author Chad Pelley! He will be here to sign copies of his books Every Little Thing, Four-Letter Words, and Away From Everywhere, the last of which has been made into a film that will be having it’s Ottawa premiere at the NAC on Friday, March 3.

About Away From Everywhere:

“Brothers Owen and Alex Collins are brought together when mental illness claims their father and sets off a chain reaction of unrelated, heart-breaking events. Both tender and bold in its delivery, Away from Everywhere cuts no corners in telling the story of their crushing childhood, the reasons the brothers become different men, and the unthinkable act of love that tears them apart.
Part warped love story, part family tragedy, Away from Everywhere is a heart-stomping page-turner.”
