Happy New Year!  We decided in addition to our usual January sale of holiday cards and calendars to extend the sale to ALL GREETING CARDS.  This is our first time offering this special, and it will last all month long.  The seasonal cards and calendars are a whopping 40% off, while the everyday cards will be 20% off – no minimums required for either.  It’s only good on current inventory, but we have well over 1200 individual cards, not including holiday cards or boxed cards.  Oh yeah, you know we have the best cards in town.


January Sales

·                     sale.jpg40% off all Holiday cards (boxed, singles, photo frames)

Early American Quilts & Coverlets
This collection of early American crafts features quilts, coverlets, embroideries and baskets.  Among the textiles is a wonderful signed 1850 Ohio coverlet, a fabulous crazy quilt dated 1898 and several grandmother’s flower garden patterns.  There are also two Persian paisley shawls, some beautiful embroideries, and a silk kimono.  But mostly there are quilts, ranging in date from 1850-1950, and many Ohio heirlooms.  What a nice, warm, winter crafts exhibition.  Show continues through February 1.


In Memoriam: Mary Daly

daly-mary-s.jpgThursday, January 7, 7-9pm

Feminist Philosopher Mary Daly died on Sunday at age 81.  Mary Daly was rabble-rousing radical whose turn of phrase would turn your head.  She taught at Boston College and wrote many books, including The Church and the Second Sex (1968), Gyn/Ecology, the Metaethics of Radical Feminism (1978), Pure Lust: Elemental Feminist Philosophy (1984), and Websters' First New Intergalactic Wickedary of the English Language (with Jane Caputi, 1987).  Her tussle with Boston College over not allowing men in her classes was legendary, and although she was granted tenure, she and the college reached a settlement in 2001 and, at age 72, she agreed to retire.

In honor of Mary Daly’s vast accomplishments, power to challenge the patriarchy and make us re-think our own language, we will host a get-together on Thursday evening.  "It was Mary's wish that if women or people want to memorialize her in any way they should stay in their own locality and have a get-together where they read or discuss her work," said Linda Barufaldi of San Diego, one of several former graduate students of Dr. Daly's who cared for her as her health declined.  Come share your memories of how Mary Daly touched your life, or share your discovery of her works, even if you’re just discovering them now.  And Peace to you, Mary Daly.

~ second Thursdays ~

Nothing like a happy swing band to warm you up on a cold winter’s night.  Come dance the night away with us and Gene's Jazz Hot.  If Santa didn’t bring you their second CD, Live, Love, Laugh and Be Happy: Live at Loganberry Books, don’t despair; you can pick one up here.  You need this to get through a Cleveland winter, you know.  Donations for the band appreciated.


Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month

A420: Alphabet book "emma washes her ears"
I’m looking for an Alphabet book written probably in the late 70's.  It was a big book -- like 18 inches -- with a hard cover.  it had hand drawn illustrations.  Each letter had two pages.  The "E" had an illustration of a little girl, and a caption of "Emma cleans/washes her ears."


Larchmere Fundraiser

~ Larchmere Fundraiser ~

You’re right, we’re always fundraising for something – can’t help it! we have big dreams! – but this is an easy one.  Just join us for a drink at Academy Tavern.  A portion of the drink sales will go towards funding new gateway signage (our old one, which is so small you didn’t even know about it, did you?, is falling off its post, and besides, we have a new logo we want to share).  It’s just a little thing, but we like seeing you, and we really want new signs.  Oh, but there is one eensy-teensy catch: Sue Weir of Metheny Weir will be tending bar.  Yeah, that’s right.  Oh, and did you hear about the remodeled women’s bathroom?  Compliments of Metheny Weir of course.  Yeah, see ya there.

Book Clubs

Praise the Unsung Book Club ~ Muriel Barbery’s The Elegance of the Hedgehog

Thursday, January 28, 7pm

~ fourth Thursdays ~

It’s been a long hiatus for our book clubs, but we’re back on schedule now.  Austeniana will discuss two Jane Austen novels: Mansfield Park and Emma, and we will finish the official Austen canon with Persuasion in February.  Praise the Unsung will discuss Muriel Barbery’s The Elegance of the Hedgehog.  It seemed relatively obscure when we picked it, but now it’s on the bestseller list and every book club in town is reading it.  That’s okay, that just means more of you know it, so come discuss it with us and help us choose what to read next!
