A big round of thanks to all the authors who participated in Author Alley this year.  We had 46 authors in attendance, weather was perfect, and we’re pleased to have seen so many of you, and to introduce you to these great authors.  Yes, of course, we still have some books in stock if you missed the event.

Construction continues on Larchmere, and guess what that means?  We’re having a SALE!  The construction crews are hard at work, but they make way for both auto and pedestrian traffic, so don’t be afraid to come see us.  Before the fancy new concrete, asphalt and brickwork is all finished, we’ve decided to institute a full-store, tiered sale.  Here’s how it works:

10% off  purchases $10---$50

15% off  purchases  $51--$100

20% off  purchases $101 and over

Yes, cards and tchotchkes are included, and yes, Loganberry Perks points will accumulate.  No other discounts will apply.

170B: Family who lives in a tent and moves from place to place

I’m trying to track down a book I remember reading and LOVING as a child back in the 1960s. I was probably 8 or 10 at the time. I don’t recall there being any pictures. It was about a girl and her family who migrated from place to place and lived in a tent. I remember there being detail about how they set up their tent to make it feel like home. The little girl had a shoe box of some sort that all her belongings and treasures were kept in. She may or may not have had a doll, too. I can’t recall the plot. I just recall being fascinated by a little girl living in a tent and having to move everything the family owned from place to place. Any help you can give me would be great!  Visit the blog

Over the past three decades, the Institute’s artists’ books collection has grown to almost 1,700 books representing North American artists, Western Europe, South and Central America, and Asia. Books in this collection date from the 1960s to the present and include some rare and historically significant "classics." While the collection has some unique books and some books made by Institute students, most of the books are multiples by professional artists who have turned to the book form for artistic expression and experimentation.

Pearl S. Buck: The Good Earth

Wednesday, July 23, 7:00-8:30pm
~ fourth Wednesdays ~

Nobel Laureate Pearl S. Buck’s epic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about a vanished China and one family’s shifting fortunes.Though more than seventy years have passed since this remarkable novel won the Pulitzer Prize, it has retained its popularity and become one of the great modern classics. In The Good Earth Pearl S. Buck paints an indelible portrait of China in the 1920s, when the last emperor reigned and the vast political and social upheavals of the twentieth century were but distant rumblings. This moving, classic story of the honest farmer Wang Lung and his selfless wife O-Lan is must reading for those who would fully appreciate the sweeping changes that have occurred in the lives of the Chinese people during the last century. Nobel Prize winner Pearl S. Buck traces the whole cycle of life: its terrors, its passions, its ambitions and rewards. Her brilliant novel—beloved by millions of readers—is a universal tale of an ordinary family caught in the tide of history.
