Deep discounts on several books about Windsor may pose a difficult choice for readers, but a simple solution is at hand, says Martin Deck, marketing coordinator for the Campus Bookstore: “Buy them all.”
The store has reduced the price of five local works:
Rev E.C. LeBel and the Creation of the University of Windsor by George McMahon follows the first president of the University as he shepherds it from a Roman Catholic institution to a public secular school. Originally priced at $56.95, now $9.99.
A Show of Hands: Boxing on the Border by Marty Gervais pays tribute to the intensity and dreams of young boxers through photos and text excerpted from journals kept by the subjects. Originally priced at $25, now $7.99.
My Town: Faces of Windsor by Marty Gervais brings together more than 70 snapshots of the people and places that have called Windsor home. The author has sought them out and made their stories his own. Originally priced at $19.99, now $5.99.
Sculpture by the River: a Museum without Walls by Patricia and Lou Odette features photographs of artworks from the riverfront Odette Sculpture Park. Originally priced at $19.99, now $5.99.
Bob Monks’ History of Windsor touches on both major and seemingly insignificant aspects of the city with the trademark charm of the late cartoonist and community chronicler. Originally priced at $16, now $4.99.
“At these prices, you’ll want more than one of these books,” Deck says. “Buying all five will save you more than $100 off the total list prices!”
