parking metersaleWe've been in our new digs here for five years now, and we're just beginning to feel the growing pains every bookseller feels when the shelf extenders cease to do their magic to make one more book fit on a shelf.  So now that we're entering the dog-days of August we decided to offer a special month-long 20% off sale on all fiction!  That's right, come in anytime in August and chop 20% off general fiction prices (most are already 50% off current retail price, so it's a great deal!).  AND, to make it even better, Shaker Heights has decapitated the parking meters on the Shaker side of Larchmere, so parking in front of Loganberry is currently free!  (Can't tell you what new heads these meters might grow, but take advantage of the freebie while you can.)

Exciting recent acquisitions

  • Complete Writings of Leon Trotsky and a lot of other socialist literature
  • Vintage Cleveland postcards (found!, after being missing from the move 5 years ago!)

~ first Thursdays ~
Three Shaker Heights artists, Maurice Perkins, Minako Akamine Wreen and Joy Cusi Griffith, share a studio and creative inspirations together.   Their backgrounds and media are rather different however, so you can enjoy diverse outcroppings of their artistic aspirations and cultural influences.  Come meet the artists, enjoy international refreshments, and encounter something new.  Show runs August 7-September 1.

Limited Editions Club
Thursday, August 21, 7pm
~ third Thursdays ~
The Limited Editions Club commissioned famous artists to illustrate old classics, and then printed them beautifully on top-quality paper and bound them in gorgeously in slipcases.  All were numbered and signed by the illustrator (sometimes by the book designer), and available only by subscription.  Begun in 1929, the club soon earned a devoted following, and has since become quite desirable amongst collectors.  But they're all different, and there is a range of quality and rarity in the LEC history.  Presentation by Jack Belcher, longtime NOBS member and LEC collector.   $3 suggested donation.

D296: Dragon's wife is sick, needs monkey heart
The only story I recall from a collection late 1970s or earlier--the dragon's wife is sick and needs a monkey heart to eat, drama ensues. Detailed pen & ink illustration of dragon, monkey, & tree. Dragon looked so sad. Looking for title of collection or author. Hardbound, 8.5x11ish, maybe 150 pages.

Bloomsday Club
Thursday, August 28, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
The Bloomsday Club tackles Chapter 13 of James Joyce's UlyssesNovices and veterans alike are welcome -- it's a small informal group.  We've been going at Ulysses in a slow methodical way for a year and a half now, and we're about half-way through!  Some members of the group claim they'll finish this book if it kills them, others aren't sure if it won't just kill them, but the company is good, and we're sure there's a prize at the end.  There is a prize, isn't there?

Austeniana Club
Thursday, August 28, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
Jane Austen sequels and spin-offs abound in recent years, but the earliest one we've found was published in 1913, a good hundred years after Austen's death.  Old Friends and New Fancies by Sybil G. Brinton also distinguishes itself by not being a mere sequel to just one of Austen's novels, but a conglomerative extension of all six, where the characters interact, snub, and of course marry across novel boundaries.  What a treat!  Hmm...  Georgiana Darcy and William Price or Tom Bertram, perhaps?  I'm not telling.  Books are available now at Loganberry; there's time enough to read it before the meeting on August 28th.

Larchmere Sidewalk Sale
Author AlleyFirst, I want to share a comment from the Local Author Book Fair that we held during the Larchmere Flea Market & Festival on June 28th.   Carolyn Nilson is an author of training manuals (Team Games for Trainers, The Trainer's Handbook), most published by mainstream presses like McGraw-Hill.  They’re professional textbooks really, and I warned her there might not be a huge demand for these expensive books at the Flea Market.  However, she had a blast!  Her letter sums it up best:  “It was fun interacting with such an interesting cross-section of area folks, and although I sold no books, I did meet a fan! who said he has 3 of my books and uses them in his engineering consulting work.  I also met a guy who offered me a  job—in Columbus!”  The spirit expressed here sums up the Festival perfectly for me.  And she’s been back to the shop twice since the festival, with friends in tow.  What fun to see these connections being made!  Thanks for sharing the good news.  Oh, and mark your calendar for the Larchmere Sidewalk Sale on Saturday, August 30th!  Loganberry Books offers a store-wide 20% off sale during Sidewalk Sales . . . it only happens twice a year.
