Fall is upon us, and the Annex Gallery pays homage to trees.  Halloween displays are in the window (at least until Otis says otherwise), and we're in the midst of Banned Books Week.  Join us for a film about two independent bookstores, our anniversary party for Gene's Jazz Hot, numerous book clubs, and otherwise happy browsing for books at Loganberry! Happy Fall!

the Cleveland Circle
Dreams from my FatherWednesday, October 15, 7pm
The Cleveland Circle book group is one of oldest and most active local book clubs.  While their members may come and go, the club has been steadily growing and usually attracts 35+ women per session.  At this special meeting, other readers are invited to join in the conversation.  The book will be Barack Obama's Dreams from my FatherOriginally published in 1995 after Obama was elected the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, the book was re-released in 2004 following Senator Obama's keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and has become a national best-seller since his presidential campaign.  The autobiography follows Barack's coming-of-age and early career, his personal experiences with race relations, and his search for his father's family.  It has been reviewed by Time as perhaps "the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician."

Paperback DreamsAdvance Film Screening:  Paperback Dreams
Thursday, October 16, 7pm
~ third Thursdays ~
Come watch Paperback Dreams, a short documentary film featuring the business lives of two renowned independent bookstores:  Cody's Books and Kepler's Books (both in the California bay area).  The film is scheduled to air on PBS sometime in November.  However, it really is a conversation starter, so come see it with friends and bibliophiles.  What better place to see a documentary about bookstores than in a bookstore?  Cody's and Kepler's are both legendary, and while their legacies may be unique, their recent struggles are not.  Cody's has closed since the making of this film, but Kepler's lives on.   $3 suggested donation.

Bloomsday & Austeniana Clubs
Thursday, October 23, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~

Continuing with the Jane Austen sequels, the Austeniana club reads Presumption by Julia Barrett  Newcomers welcome anytime.

M537: Mute Girl with Boy on Quest
All I know is the ending. They finally end up on the other side of a mountain and the girl is able to speak after having been mute for the entire book. May have had a horse along. Read in early 90s, thought it was Lloyd Alexander, but doesn't match any of his. Probably fantasy. Hint of romance.


P.S.  As I was preparing to send this newsletter today, a woman walked into the bookstore holding a tiny cat proclaiming "you have to help me."  She said she found the kitten in a paper bag thrown outside the bank, and that she had saved it from seeking refuge in the wheel well of a car.  I'm guessing that this orange tabby foundling is about 4 weeks old and female, and obviously in need food, shelter, and love.  Just because I adopted a stray kitten a couple months ago doen't mean I need another, so I seek your help.  Otis attracted many interested takers, so here's the test:  can any of you adopt a sweet little bundle of orange fuzz?  She needs a home.  Thanks.
