Cartoonist Chester Brown appears at McNally Robinson Booksellers on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
Speaking & Signing Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus: Prostitution and religious obedience in the Bible (Drawn & Quarterly). Co-presented by The Winnipeg International Writers Festival as part of our collaborative Spring Literary Series.
Chester Brown (author of the bestselling Paying for It: A comic-strip memoir of being a john) continues his thoughts on sex work by retelling nine stories from Hebrew scriptures and the Christian New Testament. Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus forms a fascinating and startling thesis about biblical representations of prostitution.

Neil Gaiman Visits on December 15
When: Tuesday, December 15th, at 6 pm
A master storyteller, Neil Gaiman has won countless awards for his novels, poetry, screenplays, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and theatrical dramas. His books include American Gods, Coraline, and Odd and the Frost Giants.
And the man has a devoted following. In cities all across the globe, fans line up to catch a glimpse of Gaiman and have him sign books and memorabilia.
Back in October, Gaiman held a contest to see which independent North American bookstore could hold the best party for his novel The Graveyard Book. McNally Robinson Polo Park won the grand prize — a visit from Neil Gaiman himself — an honour we shared with The Little Shop of Stories in Decatur, Georgia.
Needless to say, we are thrilled to have Neil Gaiman pay us a visit!
How Early Should You Arrive
Our staff will start directing people to the presentation area at 5:00 pm. We do have a plan, so there’s no need to line-up. Neil Gaiman himself has assured us that everyone in the store will get their item signed!
How Much Will it Cost?
The event is free to all!
The Order of Events
At 6:00 pm Neil Gaiman will do a reading and a Q & A. If you’d like to send your questions in advance, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
