Staff Picks LIVE, with friends

Wednesday, December 10, 7-9PM

~ Endpapers: second Wednesdays ~

What should you read next?  What’s a good gift for Uncle Billy and little Frieda?  So glad you asked.  We are presenting, in live presentation style, our favorites.  It’s kind of like a networking or speed dating event, where each person has a maximum of 5 minutes to tell you about their favorite books.  Most of these are recent publications, but not exclusively.  Who are these adjudicators of taste?  Well, the professional staff of Loganberry Books (including Harriett Logan, Sarah Willis, Ami Bray, Emily Austin-Rose, Sonora Miller, Rebecca Knab, Rachel Dinga and Brenda Logan) as well as some invited guests (including Karen Long, Michael Ruhlman, Mary Doria Russell and Sarah Gridley).  It’ll be about an hour of impassioned treaties from readers as diverse as the people on your gift list.  It might even be a bit amusing, come see.  


Thanks for reading.  Thanks for keeping Loganberry around for two decades, I really appreciate it.
