New year, new books to discover

Welcome to 2020! We're so grateful to all the customers who helped us close out the year, the decade, and our first quarter-century in style last month, and we're excited to embark on great things ahead. Some of you have ambitious new reading goals for the new year: as always, we're here to help in store, or sign yourself up for our bespoke Book of the Month Club and receive a book handpicked for you every month of this year! Even if you're hoping to just feel more okay after a stressful holiday season, or in the face of distressing world events, we hope to offer some solace, whether through mindfulness resources like Just Breathe; books that inspire you to build the world you want to live in; or simply by offering a safe place to come and find a book that reflects your experience of the world, whatever that may be.

Bucket List Book Club

Kurt Vonnegut: Breakfast of Champions
Wednesday, January 22, 2020, 7pm
~fourth Wednesdays~
In Breakfast of Champions, one of Kurt Vonnegut’s most beloved characters, aging writer Kilgore Trout, finds to his horror that a Midwest car dealer is taking his fiction as truth. What follows is murderously funny satire, as Vonnegut looks at war, sex, racism, success, politics, and pollution in America and reminds us how to see the truth.

The Bucket List Book Club is led by former Loganberry staffer and writer Susan Petrone. Please come and join our lively conversation!

Annual Show and Tell
Thursday, January 23, 2020, 7pm
It's the time of year for NOBS' Show & Tell session. We all have our favorite books: a cherished childhood favorite, a book left to us by a wonderful friend, or a treasured copy of an old classic. Anything goes including the stories that go with the book. Either way, there’s always something to learn and some great books to discuss with fellow bibliophiles. Come join us!

Kiran Bhat: We of the Forsaken World
Thursday, January 23, 2020, 7pm
In this new story collection, author Kiran Bhat tells the stories of four worlds falling apart, through the structure of four linguistic chains, comprised of the accounts of four people witnessing the decline of these worlds, in four acts. These sixteen stories connect along subtle lines, dispersing at the moments where another story is about to take place. These are the tales of not just sixteen strangers, but many different lives, who live on this planet, at every second, everywhere.
