Happy New Year!  Come celebrate -- tonight! -- as we're open until 9pm and have not one, but two events this evening!  That's right, since the New Year came on a Thursday, we're holding our first and second Thursday events together, this evening:  the monthly Annex Gallery Opening Reception AND Gene's Jazz Hot.  Sounds like fun to me!

Annex Gallery
Ann Caywood BrownAnn Caywood Brown & Hugh Brown:   Pastels, Polaroid Transfers & Poetry Broadsides
Annex Gallery Opening Reception
Thursday, January 8, 6-8pm
~ first Thursdays ~
Ann Caywood Brown and Hugh Brown are a local couple with varied and intriguing artistic interests.  Ann is a painter and photographer who has had many local shows, and who will be bringing a variety of her work to this Annex Gallery show.  Her polaroid transfers are particularly fascinating, with a blend of the familiar and fantasy.  Hugh has a most excellent collection of poetic broadsides, fine press pages of poetry rendered in a visual display that makes the work sing both in word and display.  Some are by famous authors such as John Updike, and are signed.  The Opening Reception is usually held on the first Thursday of the month, but we'll take a break on New Year's Day and celebrate on January 8th instead, with Gene's Jazz Hot playing next door in the LitArts room.  Show continues through February 2.

Gene's Jazz Hot
Gene's Jazz HotGene's Jazz Hot:  In Concert
Thursday, January 8, 7pm-9pm
~ second Thursdays ~
Continuing their monthly gig here at Loganberry Books is Gene's Jazz Hot.  Their sweet sound is part jazz, part swing, and a whole lot of foot-tapping fun.  It's sure to warm your heart on a cold winter's night.  This month our concert will be on the same evening as the Annex Gallery Opening Reception, so there's even more to enjoy than usual.  Join us.   Donations for the band gladly accepted.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month
Congratulations to Lisa and Leona, Stumper Magicians of the Year!
Stump the Bookseller depends on a great many volunteers and biblio afficianados to create its success solving sometimes very vague literary memories.  We humbly thank them all.  Particular thanks this year go to Lisa, a children's librarian from Marcy NY, and Lenona, a theatre worker from Somerville MA.  Both have both been contributing to the site for years, and  I am pleased to award them special Stumper Magician of the Year awards.  Many thanks!!

B664: boy in limbo land
I read this young-adult semi-sci-fi novel in the 70's or early 80's.  A young man disappears from the sight of others, in a parallel universe (called Limbo?) where things and people that are forgotten go. The boy's relationship with his father is strained, and King Lear the play comes up.

NOBSShow and Tell
Thursday, January 19, 7pm

~ third Thursdays ~
After the holiday season is the best time to crow about your new finds and treasures, so join us for our popular Show and Tell session on the third Thursday of January.  Your biblio treasures may not be old, but something intrigues you about them.  Beauty, after all, is in the eye of the beholder, and we learn from our peers about what makes something collectible.  Personal stories, mysteries, and questions welcome.  You might learn something new about your own book.    $3 suggested donation.

Book Clubs
JoyceBloomsday & Austeniana Clubs
Thursday, January 22, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
After a two-month holiday, our two ongoing author-intensive book clubs are back in session.  The book clubs will meet on the fourth Thursday, January 22, when we'll see where the Joyce readers are with Ulysses (somewhere near Chapter 12), and the Austen group will discuss the entire Fitzwilliam Darcy trilogy by Pamela Aidan.  New members are welcome, regardless of the reading record.
