Happy Holidays 2020

This year has had unexpected challenges for all of us, and one thing we can be sure of is you have a story to tell. There are so many stories, so many aspects of that story and styles of the telling. One resource that helps is to read other people's stories, near and far, recent and ancient. Reading groups and classes from Lit Cleveland help, too. Ask us for our recommendations; challenge us to find the perfect fit for you or family and friends. And let's count our blessings and share the warmth of the holiday season, beginning with the aptly-named Thanksgiving. We are indeed thankful you're still here.


Larchmere Holiday Stroll

Friday and Saturday, November 27 & 28 2020, 10am-6pm
Sunday, November 29, 2020, 12pm-5pm
The Larchmere Holiday Stroll has been our kick-off to the holiday season for 49 years, so not even a pandemic can completely stop it.

Otis' Old Curiosity Shop, Loganberry's popular holiday pop-up shop, is stocked full of local artists’ work, heartwarming crafts, books and cards, tchotchkes sweet & snarky, and tons of toys both entertaining and educational. There’s no live entertainment this year, but the trees are decorated, and we miss you. We'll have more offerings for sale on our website than ever before--including tchotchkes, gifts, and games--so you can shop local for the holidays without ever leaving home!

We'll also have quizzes and an "ask the bookseller" time on Instagram and Facebook Stories to help with your trickiest gift-giving questions without your even having to leave the house. We look ready to helping you start your holiday season right, whether on the boulevard or by phone, email, or social media.

Virtual Author Talk with CMNH

The Butterfly Effect by Edward Melillo
~Event Presented by CMNH~
Wednesday, December 9, 2020, 7pm EDT
Join the Cleveland Museum of Natural History for a virtual lecture with Edward Melillo (an Amherst professor of history and environmental studies) on his new book The Butterfly Effect: Insects and the Making of the Modern World.

Click here to register for the event through CMNH

The Butterfly Effect is a charming and wide-ranging tour across time and around the globe of all the ways insects have shaped our history and been essential to our lives – from fashion to food, music, and medicine to the worlds of business and scientific research. Humans have not only coexisted with but relied on insects in myriad fascinating ways for thousands of years, and we continue to do so into the present day.

Designed by our own Rachel Krislov, the new "Loganberry Books: Home of Berry Good Books" artwork is now featured on 5 new items! We have a raspberry (loganberry?) long-sleeved relaxed t-shirt, a yummy lime green fleece vest (matches our entryway), Italian-made bonded leather journals in purple, the perfect coffee mug, and a pint glass with a purple bottom. We also have magnets, round stickers, pens, pencils, bumper stickers, our perfect 25th Anniversary tote bag (featuring Otis), Edible Books aprons, and some older branded clothing like the Author Alley t-shirt. Your purchase of Loganberry merch shows your support of local business, and is a great gift for someone who is difficult to choose for. We'll giftwrap for free and ship anywhere!
