I visited the Whodunit? mystery bookstore in Winnipeg on a lovely May day in 2010 while at the Rotary District Convention. Winding our way from downtown to 165 Lilac Street Sharon and I parked in front of the store. I was warmly welcomed when I entered the store. The store is crowded with a large selection of mysteries.
While traveling I try to find authors from the city or area I am visiting when I go to a store. After browsing through the store I asked for recommendations on a mystery set in Winnipeg or Manitoba. After a few moments Armin Wiebe’s book Murder in the Gutenthal was suggested. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and exchanged emails with Armin. He advised the store is a short distance from his residence and said his late wife had done her best to keep the store in business. I appreciate booksellers who can recommend local authors.
They also have a nice website located at http://www.whodunitcanada.com/home
and a newsletter with lots of reviews and author information.
I enjoyed my visit to the store and plan to go again on my next trip to Winnipeg.
