It's such a privilege to host Bookbug's Novel Kids Book Club for middle readers. We began with Home of the Brave by Katherine Applegate. I was amazed at the thoughtful discussion engendered by this book about a refugee from Africa to Minnesota.
Do you know what is happening tomorrow? That's right, it is Independent Bookstore Day! Are you as excited as we are? Come on in and see what we've got! There is a whole schedule of fun starting from the moment we open our doors until we close up for the night. Take a peek at our events schedule for all the details. We will start out the day with coffee, crumpets and lots of sweet merch arriving just for our special day.
Are you tired of all of your "favorite" authors? Need some new, exciting literature in your life? Come in this weekend and let us guide you!
My recommendation is Lindsay Hunter's novel Ugly Girls. This slim novel packs a seismic boom. Rarely have I read a book that creates such a familiar, yet fictional reality. Hunter has the sophistication to write characters with both keen insight and unwavering kindness, a skill that is riveting.
As you may have heard, we temporarily sold out of Granola, a local lit mag based out of GR. Thank you for helping us make this publication a success in our store. For those of you who have come in requesting it, it is BACK!! We have re-stocked and you can get yours today!!
