February 2016 News:

It's the month of love—the love of books, of course! If you love reading, you'll love this month's staff picks.


On Sunday, February 28th at 2 p.m., Jason Tetro will be visiting the store. Jason is a microbiologist and the author of the new book The Germ Files, about the role microbes play in human health. Jason will be sharing his research with us and discussing tips for preventing flu and more. Please email us to RSVP for this author visit.


Our Novel Nights book club returns on Wednesday, March 9th at 7:30 p.m. The book is Olga Grushin's unique novel Forty Rooms, which revolves around the premise that a woman's life is made up of different rooms. The protagonist's first rooms are in her family's Moscow apartment, and her world expands when she moves to the United States and finds love, marriage, and a family. But she still needs to confront the ghosts of her youth. This is a mysterious, provocative novel and will give us lots to discuss. Please note that the book does not come out until February 16th. You may call or email to reserve a copy of the book and a ticket for the discussion, and you will be able to pick up the book after February 16th.  Space is limited, so don't hesitate!


We will be closed on February 14th and February 15th, the Sunday and Monday of the long weekend. A Happy Valentine's Day and Family Day to all.
