Grey drizzle, low light, hot water heat
finally turned on behind the desk at Main Street: must be late fall!
And, after a month or two in which not much happened, November brings a
whole horde of readings and other special events:
On Thursday 3 November, we're selling books at a private event for novelist Patrick Taylor (An Irish Country Doctor, & etc.). If you would like a signed copy of one of his in print works, please let us know!
On Friday 4 November, our friend Clint Burnham has organized a reading by American poet Rodrigo Toscano, which starts around 7pm at Main Street. Toscano will be reading from and signing his most recent book, Explosion Rocks Springfield.
After all this activity, a break for a week or two, and then on Wednesday 23 November poets Danielle LaFrance and Anahita Jamali Rad, co-editors of the feminist literary journal About a Bicycle, will join us at Main Street at 7pm to read from their latest collections, both published by our friends at Talonbooks.
That's it for events this month.
As usual, a few staff picks and recent client favorites round thinsg
out. Not a book club, just titles we're currently reading and enjoying:
Finally, December is fast approaching. A gentle reminder that things
will soon become completely mental over here, and that extra savings are
often available on books in return for a slightly longer wait. If your
Xmas / Hanukkah / pagan winter festival
gift list includes books, give us a holler by late November, and avoid
being stuck behind the guy who desperately needs a signed first edition
of the Hobbit on December 23rd (which sounds like a
joke, but we have taken this exact frantic request once or twice each
December for the last 16.5 years)!
