Former police chief Devon Clunis and his wife Pearlene launched their new book this afternoon in front of a large crowd at McNally Robinson.
It felt like half of Winnipeg showed up to the bookstore today as Devon Clunis launched the children's book based on his life, The Little Boy From Jamaica. It's the story of Devon's life as a child coming from Jamaica to Winnipeg. Clunis' hope is that every child gets a chance to achieve their dream.
The book launch was a success. Over 150 people showed up and crowded together in the atrium. The store was running low on books, having to take a reserve box of books brought by the Clunis'.
The entire front row of kids appeared to have books and were all very carefully reading through them. Multiple police officers and cadets were also in attendance, supporting their former police chief.
