Book Signing J.C. Anderson: The Truth in Black and White
Sunday, September 3, 2017, 1:00PM
Join local author J.C. Anderson as he signs his tenth book, The Truth in Black and White, which presents the author's experiences living as the lone white man in government subsidized housing with 139 African Americans in a rundown urban neighborhood. Anderson writes: "I have always felt that integration is as much a white responsibility as a black one. When I moved here three years ago, I had in mind a Studs Terkel oral history about the lives of Black women. To get started, I asked my new neighbors what their lives have been like. As I recorded their case histories and testimonials and spoke with white friends and colleagues, I realized how little most Americans know about the true history of racism, slavery, and civil rights. In my completed manuscript, the experiences and comments of my Afro-American friends and neighbors accent and support my true, adumbrated history. Near the book’s end, my black friends and I recommend practical cures for the deadly disease of racism - conditional cash transfers for the poor, conditional tuition-free college education for qualified minority students, and national truth and reconciliation conferences."

Annex Gallery Hahn: The Ambiance of Flow
Wednesday, September 6th, 6:00pm

Meredith Hahn considers herself a figurative artist. The figure in its certain poses can tell what the soul has endured. For Meredith the figure is the most natural and poetic way to express emotions or experiences. Inspired by the beauty that surrounds us, she often gives natural elements a voice or mood by merging them with the human figure. Like dancers, a tree or a mountain can have a body and face to convey a small story of its life. At times dancers are the subjects of her work. At times her figures are more like cartoons with long sleeves and blank stares. These figures are meant to bring a playful and gentle approach to life’s difficult circumstances. Meredith's show opens with a reception on September 6th and runs through Sunday October 1st.

Book Signing Dressler Book signing for The Last To See Me
Thursday, September 21, 2017, 7:00PM
Please join us as M Dressler talks about her novel The Last To See Me. In a small logging town in northern California, young Emma Rose Finnis was born and died. Now, no one remembers her hardworking life and her grand dreams--but she remembers. She remembers everything. Emma Rose is still here, one hundred years after her death . . . and she doesn't plan on leaving. But when a determined hunter arrives with instructions to "clean" Emma Rose out of her haunt, the stately Lambry mansion, death suddenly isn't the worst fate imaginable. Emma Rose refuses to be hounded from the only place she's ever found peace, even if it means waging a war on the living . . . and the dead. Lyrical and haunting, this spellbinding American ghost story alternates between Emma Rose's life and afterlife as the past and present become entwined in a compelling tale of loss, love and tenacity over a century in the making. As Kirkus Reviews states: A gorgeous mystery of love that twists into curses. And we would agree! This is a haunting, memorable book!

Book Club St. John Mandel: Station Eleven
Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 7:00PM
Kirsten Raymonde will never forget the night Arthur Leander, the famous Hollywood actor, had a heart attack on stage during a production of King Lear. That was the night when a devastating flu pandemic arrived in the city, and within weeks, civilization as we know it came to an end. Twenty years later, Kirsten moves between the settlements of the altered world with a small troupe of actors and musicians. They call themselves The Traveling Symphony, and they have dedicated themselves to keeping the remnants of art and humanity alive. But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who will threaten the tiny band’s existence. And as the story takes off, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic, the strange twist of fate that connects them all will be revealed.


Classic Movie Night

Thursday, September 28, 2017, 7:00PM
This month we will be showing Charlie Chaplin's "The Circus" from 1928 which is, in many ways, his forgotten classic. Wrongfully accused of criminal acts, a tramp (Charlie Chaplin) unwittingly ducks into a big top, where his bumbling attempts to avoid pursuing police officers earn the laughter and applause of the circus-goers. Impressed, the ringmaster (Allan Garcia) decides to employ the tramp as an entertainer. In between getting trapped in a lion's cage and partaking in clumsy high wire escapades, he falls for a beautiful show rider (Merna Kennedy), who unfortunately has eyes for a daring tightrope acrobat. Grab the popcorn and a friend for Classic Movie Night at Loganberry Books, every 4th Thursday at 7 p.m. Relive the glory days of the silver screen... no ticket required! We’ll enjoy popular favorites, hidden treasures, and B-movie howlers. Fun for the whole family.


Local Voices Sullivan-Simon: I Am Me and You Are You
Sunday, October 1, 2017, 1:00PM
Join local children's author Stacie Sullivan-Simon for the signing of her new picture book, "I Am Me and You Are You." "I Am Me and You Are You" discusses racism and bullying, introducing the discussion of how each and every one of us is unique. It teaches children to "Stop, Think, & Do the Switch-A-Roo," and put yourself in that person’s shoes. Sullivan-Simon aims to start the conversation with our little ones, because they hold the key to eradicating racism and bullying to make our world a better place.

Book Signing Proffer-Teasley: Brodsky Among Us
Tuesday, October 3, 2017, 7:00PM
Ellendea Proffer-Teasley joins us for a conversation about political art, censorship, and publishing. Proffer-Teasley is the author of Mikhail Bulgakov: Life & Work, co-founder of Russian Literature TriQuarterly and Ardis Publishers, and a 1989 MacArthur Fellowship recipient. Her most recent book is Brodsky Among Us, a searingly personal memoir of the great Russian poet and Nobel laureate. Proffer-Teasley befriended Brodsky in the 1960s on a trip to Russia, and was instrumental in his relocation to the US after his exile. She draws a portrait of an imperfect man, a great artist, and uncompromising political thinker. Perhaps she can help interpret our troubled political climate with clues from Brodsky's totalitarian past.

Thanks for reading,
