tshirt-otis-s.jpgOtis says: BUY BOOKS!  That’s the message on our new t-shirts (design pictured at left), which are currently being printed. We hope to have them in time for the Sidewalk Sale on Saturday, but if we’re a couple days late, we’ll still be taking orders.  Who can resist those little kitty fangs?  Oh, and did someone say Sidewalk Sale?  Yes, it’s right around the corner.  On Saturday, September 4th, bargains abound all over Larchmere for our biannual Sidewalk Sale, and, as usual, Loganberry Books offers 20% off all books on this day, plus some other great bargains out on the sidewalks.

gall-vainberg-s.jpgEugenia Vainberg -- Illustration in Embroidery
Thursday, September 2, 6-8pm

~ first Thursdays ~
Eugenia Vainberg learned the art of embroidery as an eight year old child living in Ukraine. She emigrated to the United States in 1977, where she became involved with a quilting group in Cleveland. Of her work, the artist says, “Colors are music to me. Tonalities of colors, shades and hues create the feeling of melodies in me. Embroidery became an important part of my life, a way of self expression and reflection. It is very exciting to translate from the languages of different media into the tongue of embroidery.”  Show continues through September 31.


Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month

stump.jpgS680: Spoiled rich cat is unhappy until he finds a box to play in

A spoiled cat has been all over the world with his owners on balloon rides, cruises, etc., and he is always unhappy. Some dry cleaning is delivered in a box and playing in it makes him happy. It was read to me when I was a child in the 80s and the illustrations are pencil (more doodle than sketch).



Gene's Jazz Hot

How many altos does it take to change a lightbulb?  None; they can't get up that high. How many jazz pianists does it take to change a lightbulb?  Screw the changes, we'll fake it.  How many union roadies does it take to change a lightbulb?  Eleven. You got a problem with that?!  How does a soprano change a lightbulb?  She just holds on and the world revolves around her.  Yeah, okay, you’ve heard ’em all before.  But Gene’s Jazz Hot is best delivered in person, on the second Thursday of the month, here at Loganberry.  Join us.  It’s free.

Classics Club

atwood-s.jpgMargaret Atwood: The Handmaid's Tale
Thursday, September 23, 7 pm
In a startling departure from her previous novel, respected Canadian poet and novelist Atwood presents here a fable of the near future. In the Republic of Gilead, formerly the United States, far-right Schlafly/Falwell-type ideals have been carried to extremes in the monotheocratic government. The resulting society is a feminist's nightmare: women are strictly controlled, unable to have jobs or money and assigned to various classes: the chaste, childless Wives; the housekeeping Marthas; and the reproductive Handmaids, who turn their offspring over to the "morally fit" Wives. The tale is told by Offred (read: "of Fred"), a Handmaid who recalls the past and tells how the chilling society came to be. --Library Journal
