News - The Middle of July 2019

It is not often that I leave the store for more than a day or two in the summer, but we are off to spend a week in Newfoundland so that we can attend the opening of the summer show at Christina Parker Gallery where Alan has several pieces on display.

 We will spend some time in Old Bonaventure where one of our jobs is to restore our outhouse before our grandchildren arrive there at the end of August. I have a big stack of books with me and look forward to undisturbed days of reading in the much more moderate temperature of seaside Newfoundland.

 I leave the store in the capable hands of Patti, Lynn, Sara and Janet, and look forward to returning to work with renewed energy for the busiest weeks of the summer.




La Brig_hi res.jpg


La Brigantessa by Rosanna Micelotta Battigelli (Inanna Publications, 2018) was awarded Gold for Historical Fiction in the 2019 Independent Publisher Book Awards. She received her Gold Medal in May at the Awards Gala at the Copa Cabana in New York City. She attended and read at CanWrite2019 at UBC in Vancouver, where La Brigantessa was shortlisted for the 2019 Canadian Authors Association Fred Kerner Book Award. It is currently shortlisted for the 2019 Northern Lit Award, and it is a 2019 Finalist for The Miramichi Reader’s “The Very Best!” Book Award. It also won an International Book Award for Best Cover in June. Rosanna did a reading at a CAIS (Canadian Association for Italian Studies) Conference in Orvieto, Italy in June.


Rosanna was born in Calabria, Italy, and immigrated to Sudbury with her family when she was three. She has enjoyed coming to Parry Sound for a few years, and Parry Sound Books is one of her favourite stops. She is very happy to be guest author on July 20th, and looks forward to chatting with customers about her award-winning book! 





PREP WITH PAM - Plant Based Foods That Taste Like Love.

My first cookbook is finally here and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share it with all of you. This book is loaded with delicious, nutrient-dense recipes that are easy to make.

As a mom of 3 I get that time can be an issue when it comes to meal prep.

My mission is to simplify cooking and meal prep so that you can eat healthy and have more time to do the things you love.
