About Ben

Ben McNally knows books and he knows readers. He’s been putting the two together in intriguing and sometimes surprising ways since 1970, until recently at his beautiful Bay Street store, and in the fabulously successful Books and Brunch series that he runs in partnership with The Globe and Mail at the King Edward Hotel.

Ben’s warmth and genuine enthusiasm for books have made him a favourite with Canadian authors and readers. He’s been in a happy long-term relationship with Kingston WritersFest readers at our Book Lovers’ Lunch event since 2009 and continues to please the crowd as he reveals a discerning selection of the season’s best books.

Ben is past president of Project Bookmark Canada, a charitable organization that erects plaques bearing excerpts from Canadian books in the locations that inspired the writing. Ben is married to Lynn Thomson, author of Birding With Yeats: A Mother’s Memoir.
