Salutations Valentine!


Yes, we’re treating you to a lovely Valentine’s evening again this year.  What could be lovelier than live music and chocolate in a room surrounded by books?  Read below for more details.  We also welcome our own staff member’s art show in the Annex Gallery.  I think we sold a couple pieces while the work was still being hung, so come early to support Carla!  Also: NOBS Forums hits the road to see a cool film.  Read on.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month

Description: stump.jpgB818: Bears live in hollowed out trees

A large illustrated children’s book about a community of bears that all live (alone) in hollowed out trees in a forest.  The tree houses were all decorated differently… one had a “Asian theme,”  one a “country style,” one  a “modern style,” etc. The bears would be dressed to match the style of their houses.  The bears would all go to a swimming hole.  It was read to me in the late 60’s early 70’s.

Annex Gallery  
Carla Fontecchio – Collection Studies
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 2, 6-8pm
~ first Thursdays ~
Reminiscent of 19th century botanical illustration, Collection Studies is a series of works on paper that delicately portrays a selection of common plant specimens gathered throughout the Cleveland area. Reverently depicted on handmade paper, these pen and ink portraits visually convey how incredibly complex the most common natural specimens may be.  Show continues through February 27.

Live Music
Gene's Jazz Hot
Thursday, February 9, 7-9 p.m.
~ second Thursdays ~
Did you hear the news? Gene's Jazz Hot is a quartet again! Reed Simon, jazz violinist, officially joined the group last month, and contributed seamlessly to the sultry cool and toe-tapping old timey tunes. Band regulars rounding out the quartet are bassist and singer Gene Epstein, guitarist and singer Seth Rosen, and clarinetist and singer Bill Kenney.  Free homemade cookies will no doubt be served. Donations for the band gratefully accepted.

N.O.B.S. Forums

“Proceed and Be Bold!” A Film on Amos Kennedy Jr.

Thursday, February 16, 7pm
~ third Thursdays ~
At this month’s forum, Special Collections librarian Ed Vermue conducts a tour of the Letterpress Bindery at Oberlin College, followed by a screening of the film Proceed and Be Bold! At 40 years of age, Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. abandoned the traditional American Dream to follow his own. Unsatisfied with his comfortable, middle-class life, Amos traded in his computer for a printing press and his white collar for a pair of overalls. Armed with life, liberty, peanuts, and a meager yearly income of $7,000, Amos cranked out a new, mutinous declaration of independence.
Please meet at the Letterpress Bindery in the Mudd Library at Oberlin College, 148 West College Street, Oberlin, Ohio.


Classics Club
David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest
Thursday, February 23, 7 pm

~ fourth Thursdays ~
The Classics Club, led by Christine Borne, meets monthly to discuss a modern or vintage classic.  About this month's selection: “Somewhere in the not-so-distant future, the screwed-up residents of Ennet House, a Boston halfway house for recovering addicts, and students at the Enfield Tennis Academy search for the master copy of a movie so dangerously entertaining that its viewers die in a state of catatonic bliss. Explores essential questions about what entertainment is, why we need it, and what it says about who we are. -- James Wood, Guardian

This is the fourth and final discussion on Infinite Jest.
