ChiSeries reading at McNally Robinson

ChiSeries Winnipeg is BACK this October for more chills and thrills! Featuring three talented Manitoba writers, and hosted by local salt-of-the-earth Chadwick Ginther.

The event will take place at 7:30 PM in the Travel Alcove at McNally Robinson Booksellers. The ChiSeries is a non-profit speculative fiction reading series, which runs on grants and donations. All readers are paid to appear through your kindness and patronage of the arts!
