Salutations!

 

Happy New Year! Our Annual Greeting Card Sale is on!  20% off all everyday cards (we have thousands), and 40% off all holiday cards and calendars.

 

This month, we feature two children’s publishers in our front windows:  the nostalgic Parents Magazine Press (who published many a baby boomer favorite), and the more recent Purple House Press (which has reprinted many of those old favorites).   We’re also looking forward to our second annual ALA Awards live webcast – who do you think will win the Caldecott and Newbery this year?

Get anything great for Christmas? Now’s the time to share your interesting, unusual, and otherwise noteworthy reads with other bibliophiles at our semi-annual Show and Tell session.  Anything goes: you can bring treasured tomes and tell us about them, or you can bring odd curiosities you know nothing about and let group members tell you what they think.  Either way, there’s always something to learn and some great books to discuss.  Bring a book and join us!

Wilkie CollinsWilkie Collins: The Woman in White
Thursday, January 24, 2013, 7 pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
The Woman in White famously opens with Walter Hartright's eerie encounter on a moonlit London road. Engaged as a drawing master to the beautiful Laura Fairlie, Walter becomes embroiled in the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde and his 'charming' friend Count Fosco, who has a taste for white mice, vanilla bonbons, and poison. Pursuing questions of identity and insanity along the paths and corridors of English country houses and the madhouse, The Woman in White is the first and most influential of the Victorian genre that combined Gothic horror with psychological realism.
