The votes are in! Manitoba readers have chosen North End Love Songs by Katherena Vermette as the book to read for On The Same Page 2014-2015!
"In spare, minimalist language, North End Love Songs attends to the demands of Indigenous and European poetics, braiding an elegant journey that takes us from Winnipeg's North End out into the world. We enter the undocumented lives of its citizens and celebrate them through Katherena Vermette's beautiful poems."

On The Same Page, a project of The Winnipeg Foundation and Winnipeg Public Library, encourages all Manitobans to read, and talk about, the same book at the same time. The program includes book giveaways, author appearances and special events inspired by the feature book.
The Friends of Winnipeg Public Library have made a generous donation toward the purchase of books for this program.
