Karen Beckwith:  The Authority Series
Annex Gallery Opening Reception
Thursday, November 6, 6-8pm
~ first Thursdays ~
In this series of work, Karen explores the realm of secrets through the use of aquatint. The Authority series focuses on the home, in particular, using the image of a key as a visual catalyst.  After discovering the hobo system of communication, which is a series of house symbols instructing travelers where it is safe to stay, a secret language abounds and hides within the work. Some safe houses are for women only or women traveling with children. This led to the use of simplified house images to symbolize a broad concept of the family within the community. Show continues thru Dec. 1st , 2008.

Gene's Jazz Hot:  In Concert
Thursday, November 13, 7pm-9pm
~ second Thursdays ~
Gene's Jazz Hot has been playing their swing on second Thursdays at Loganberry for the past year, and the sound just gets mellower and sweeter.  Come hear Gene Epstein on bass, Seth Rosen on guitar and mandolin, Bill Kenney on clarinet, and the swooning vocals of Peggi Cella.  Call it swing, call it jazz, or just call it sweet divine and come take a load off while listening to a hometown favorite band.    Donations for the band gladly accepted.

Renee Alley:  McGuffey's Readers
N.O.B.S. Forums 
Thursday, November 20, 7pm
~ third Thursdays ~
Long before Dick and Jane was McGuffey.  McGuffey's Readers marked a generation of young children, and its worn tan covers can bring an old-timer back to childhood in a flash.  More than nostalgia items, however, McGuffey shaped several generations and the entire field of American education, with at least 120 million copies sold between 1836 and 1960.  Come learn more about the history and impact of these reading primers.   $3 suggested donation.

Bloomsday & Austeniana Clubs
[ Thursday, November 27 & Thursday, December 25 ]
~ fourth Thursdays ~
Our two ongoing book clubs usually meet on the fourth Thursday of the month.  With Thanksgiving and Christmas both squarely falling on fourth Thursdays, the readers will take a short two-month hiatus.  We'll reconvene in January, on the fourth Thursday, the 22nd.

Larchmere Holiday Stroll

Saturday, November 29, 10am-8pm
Sunday, November 30, 1-5pm
The Larchmere Holiday Stroll and the Shaker Square Tree Lighting will partner for the first time ever this Thanksgiving weekend.  The Larchmere shopping extravaganza takes place for three full days following Thanksgiving.  Three dozen locally-owned businesses will welcome the holiday season with good cheer, nostalgic fanfare, great holiday shopping.  Larchmere is known for its arts and antiques, but it is also home to some of the city's best restaurants, services, bookstores and boutiques, all independently owned and operated.  Come browse the boulevard and discover old-world shopping in your hometown neighborhood.  On Saturday, catch Lolly the Trolly from Larchmere to Shaker Square and back between 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm.  At 7pm, Santa will arrive on Shaker Square and with his magic command, will illuminate the entire 1929 Georgian historic landmark.  Afterwards, he will visit with children at CVS, complete with complementary photographs.  Join us.  Memories await you.

Ann Caywood Brown & Hugh Brown:   polaroid transfers & poetic broadsides
Annex Gallery Opening Reception
Thursday, January 8, 6-8pm
~ usually the first Thursday ~
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.  Come check it out. Show continues thru Dec. 1st , 2008.

Gene'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 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.

Show and Tell
N.O.B.S. Forums 
Thursday, January 15, 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.

Bloomsday & Austeniana Clubs
Thursday, January 22, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
After a two-month hiatus, our two book clubs will meet again.  The Bloomsday Club is working their way through the great Ulysses by James Joyce, and are about half-way through.  The Austeniana Club has already devoured all of Jane Austen's published novels, and will discuss the Pride and Prejudice trilogy spin-off by Pamela Aidan.  The Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy begins with An Assembly Such as This, and continues with Duty and Desire and concludes with These Three Remain.  Join us for this new perspective.
