Happy August!  There are so many great new acquisitions here, I had a hard time choosing things to highlight.  For the third time this year, we're completely rearranging the books in the fancy front gilt arches to display pretty sets and leather-bound books.  There's even a 40-volume set of Bulwer-Lytton with a tipped-in signed letter from him, dated 1835.  If you haven't browsed lately, there's no time like the present!

Exciting recent acquisitions
Tasha Tudor's Mother Goose
  • some nice Tasha Tudor books, including Mother Goose
  • The Complete Concordance of Shakespeare, 1966
  • interesting paperback histories of Mexico, Spain and France
  • African and tribal art books, including hair and animal motifs in African sculpture
  • some nice leather sets, including Charles Sumner and Edward Fitzgerald
  • books on weathervanes and other American Folk Art
  • The complete early church writings of the Ante-Nicene, Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers

Free Times"Best Place to Browse for Hours on a Rainy (or Snowy) Saturday
With its hardwood floors covered with faded Oriental rugs, comfy seating and bookshelves to the ceiling stuffed with mostly used books on a wide variety of subjects, Loganberry Books (13015 Larchmere Blvd.) is the kind of place where you could go in and not emerge for day[s] as you drift from room to room unearthing a string of unexpected biblio-treasures."

  Greenland Falcon Crusade

This was a new book in the elementary school library in the late 60s/early 70s. Main character was a falconer, caring for a Greenland falcon (white falcon) while on Crusade. Cover might have been green.  Chapter book - I read it in 7th or 8th grade probably.

PersepolisPersepolis and Persepolis 2 by Marjane Satrapi
Thursday, August 18th, 7pm
The graphic novel is a hot new literary field notoriously dominated by men, but Marjane Satrapi has defied the odds with her international bestselling and award-winning account of her childhood and coming-of-age in Iran during the Iranian Revolution.  The story is told in two volumes: Persepolis and Persepolis 2.   She's just published a third book too, called Embroderies, which is a candid girls talk across three generations of Iranian women.  Yes, I have that one in stock, too.  Please note meeting time is postponed to the third Thursday this month.

LitArts Progress

the floor... the floorI thought it was going to be easier than this.  Isn't that always how construction goes?  After artist Dave Repicky power washed the floor, we realized the old paint was peeling and would have to be removed before we put anything else down.  Have you ever peeled paint off a floor?  Thanks to Peter, Cassie, Kelly, Betty and Erika for their help with this chore.  And then we'll let maestro Jenny Hitmar do her artistry.  Stay tuned.
