Happy New Year!  Guess who got new bookshelves for Christmas?  Come see how we’ve expanded some of your favorite sections, including Americana, Cookbooks, Philosophy, and vintage bindings.  Looking backward, we have a window display full of old printing tools, printing history, typewriters, and our newly acquired book press from the 1893 Columbian Exhibition (it’s on its way).  Looking forward, I’ve been buying contenders for the upcoming Caldecott and Newbery Award announcements. Maybe I’ll guess right this year!  Our favorite sale of the year is on this month too: in addition to the 40% off holiday cards and 2011 calendars, all of our greeting cards are 20% off.  And we just started putting out our vintage valentines, too…

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month

stump.jpgT516: Turner’s quandary

Here’s the quandary: Newbery Honor author Megan Whalen Turner read two books as a young adult that presented two very different pictures from the same historical period.  The first was The Striped Ships by Eloise Jarvis McGraw about the Norman Conquest as seen through the eyes of a young Saxon girl.  The second presented the opposite viewpoint, with William the Conquerer as the hero.  Could it be The King's Shadow by Elizabeth Alder?  Or something more clearly from William’s point of view?  What think you, Stumper Magicians?

Lamar Richardson
Discovering the Light of Cleveland

Thursday, January 6, 6-8pm
~ first Thursdays ~
The art of photography is catching light at the right moment in time.  Lamar Richardson believes that everyone sees the world a little differently. People's experiences through the years colors their vision and photography can express that difference.  Richardson is influenced by the great photographers such as Ansel Adams, by artists such as Monet, Picasso and Vincent van Gogh, as well as by growing up in Cleveland.  His views of Cleveland are at once recognizable and yet touristic in their beauty.  Show continues through January 31.

Edith Wharton: The House of Mirth
Thursday, January 27, 7pm

"The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth," warns Ecclesiastes 7:4, and so does the novel by Edith Wharton that takes its title from this call to heed. New York at the turn of the century was a time of opulence and frivolity for those who could afford it. But for those who couldn't and yet wanted desperately to keep up with the whirlwind, like Wharton's charming Lily Bart, it was something else altogether: a gilded cage rather than the Gilded Age.  -Melanie Rehak
