A continuous comfort and an escape from these tumultuous two years, celebrate everything there is to love about film on Feb. 12 with the hashtag #GlobalMovieDay.


One for the bookworms

February is I Love to Read Month and the Manitoban staff is celebrating reading, writing and literacy with a list of books we picked up during the pandemic and just couldn’t put down. Diversify and expand your reading lists, tackle that “to be read” pile, support your local booksellers and share the joy of the written word all month long.
