I love autumn.  It's the excitement you can smell in the air, the back-to-school specials, the change of color palette to earth tones.  Some afternoons are perfect for sitting outside with a good book, some nights are ripe for curling up in a big chair with a cup of tea and, of course, a book.  Sometimes both are possible in the same day!  Read on, exciting book events are coming.

NOBS Chagrin Valley Antiquarian Book Fair
Chagrin Valley Book FairSaturday, October 8th, 10am-6pm
It's been awhile since Cleveland has had its own book fair (although the NOBS Akron Fair continues every Easter weekend).  Now we have a new location, new dealers, and lots of old books to get excited about.  Join us for a special event with 80+ dealers showing off their best gems and out-of-print specialties.  It's at the Family Life Center, 16349 Chillicothe Road in Bainbridge.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month
Stump the BooksellerS394: Stuff and Nonsense
a friend of mine (honest!) can't remember most of the details to find a children's book she would like to see again.  it involves a brother and sister who find a key that eventually leads them into a fairy kingdom. the prime minister of the kingdom is upset the children have come in.  the boy's customary refrain is "stuff and nonsense".  apparently there's a rule that once you have found your way in you have the right to be there.  the children get called home for supper, but they still have the key and can always go back.  my friend, of course, does not remember the title nor the author.

Girlfriends Literary Society
Jeanette WintersonLighthousekeeping  by Jeanette Winterson
Thursday, October 20th @ 7pm (note date change)
"My mother called me Silver. I was born part precious metal part pirate." Orphaned and anchorless, Silver is taken in by blind Mr. Pew, the mysterious and miraculously old keeper of the Cape Wrath lighthouse. Pew tells Silver ancient tales of longing and rootlessness, of journeys that move through place and time, of passion and betrayal. His stories center on Babel Dark, a local nineteenth-century clergyman who lived two lives: a public one mired in darkness and a private one bathed in a beacon of light. Pew's stories are, for Silver, a map through her own particular darkness, into her own story and, finally, into love.  With Lighthousekeeping, Winterson begins a new cycle and a return to the lyrical intimacy of her earliest work. One of the most original and extraordinary writers of her generation, Winterson has created a modern fable about the transformative power of storytelling.

LitArts Update
LitArts, ready for eventAh yes, we did finally finish the floor project.  It looks awesome. 
Like a good theatre set, most people don't really notice it (how forgiving our memories are!).  Stop by sometime and browse through our enormous collection of fiction, humor, genre fiction, and performing arts.  We'll be putting this floor to hard use in the months to follow, and look forward to having a groovy special events room.
Special thanks to Jenny!
