We have been in our present location now for ten years (so I guess I should stop calling it our “new” location), which is cause for some kind of celebration.  So we proudly present our Loganberry Perks loyalty program, full of special deals and purchasing points (every $100 spent earns a 10% off coupon).  Ask us about it next time you’re in the store, and we’ll explain all the cool perks and get you signed up. It’s free to join.


As our August sale wraps up (20% off regular fiction and biographies), we’ll celebrate with a store-wide 20% off sale during the bi-annual Sidewalk Sale on Saturday, August 31.  Don’t forget to play the Guess the Author challenge – 24 books this year, with prizes for our top contestants.  Come give it a try!  We hope to see you for our Friday night music series too, we have some great musicians on the line-up.  And three big book signings this month: knitting, baseball, and – heavy metal?  Why, yes.

James McNamara: Mystery Forrest Recent Works
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 5, 6-8pm
~ first Thursdays ~
James says:† A painter and a draughtsman creating primarily through the painting medium on canvas and paper, I have chosen to display here at Loganberry recent wood block prints. The series in called Mystery Forrest. The pattern of the wood grain in the ink is one of the components that inspired me. Larger works on canvas explore color, pattern, and lines I see in nature. Shape, line, and color have a language of their own that is coupled with my theme. I'm glad to present and share with you my art.

Toni Morrison: Beloved
Thursday, September 26, 2013, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, this spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby. Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe’s new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement.

Book Signing
Eddie Trunk: Eddie Trunk’s Essential Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, Volume II
Saturday, September 28, 2:00 pm
~ special event ~
If hard rock and heavy-metal journalism have their own Eddie Murrow, it’s Eddie Trunk. Via his web site, as a co-host of VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show, and his programs on both terrestrial and satellite radio, Trunk brings a professional’s objectivity and a fan’s passion together in one persona.  In this book, Trunk picks 35 “essential” bands of the genre, from AC/DC, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, and Megadeth to Poison, Rush, Slayer, and Van Halen. Each group gets a chapter that runs down their history, discography, obscure trivia, and Trunk’s own suggested “playlist.”  But what makes the book a joy to read are Trunk’s own anecdotes and stories of his interactions with musicians over the years – including some of whom became personal friends, like Ronnie James Dio and Rob Halford – as well as his brutally-honest opinions about some of their career moves and music.  –Houston Press
