Stump the BooksellerA401: Anora book 1920s
Hello, My grandma was born in 1924.  Her father was a principal and two students said that they had read a book where the main character was Anora and that he should name his new baby that, and he did.  She recently turned 85 and wants to know what the book was.  I have no idea author or title. Thx.

T.C. Boyle:  The Tortilla Curtain (take 2)
May 28, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
In Southern California's Topanga Canyon, two couples live in close proximity and yet are worlds apart. High atop a hill overlooking the canyon, nature writer Delaney Mossbacher and his wife, real estate agent Kyra Menaker-Mossbacher, reside in an exclusive, secluded housing development with their son, Jordan. The Mossbachers are agnostic liberals with a passion for recycling and fitness. Camped out in a ravine at the bottom of the canyon are Candido and America Rincon, a Mexican couple who have crossed the border illegally. On the edge of starvation, they search desperately for work in the hope of moving into an apartment before their baby is born. They cling to their vision of the American dream, which, no matter how hard they try to achieve it, manages to elude their grasp at every turn. In scenes that are alternately comic, frightening, and satirical, but always all "too real," Boyle confronts not only immigration but social consciousness, environmental awareness, crime, and unemployment in a tale that raises the curtain on the dark side of the American dream.

Social Networking
facebook-otis.jpgLoganberry Books has been online since 1995 (yeah, we’re as old as Amazon), but I’ve been hesitant about the social networking scene.  I started this monthly newsletter in August 2004, and I started a blog as a chatty extension of the website in August 2007.  But just this past month, I joined both Twitter and Facebook.  I’d be happy to have you as a fan, a friend or a follower, if you’re into these things.  You know what’s really cool about Twitter?  Following Neil Gaiman @neilhimself.  Check it out.  On Facebook I’m under loganberrybooks.  On Twitter, I’m @loganberrybooks.  Tweet!
