Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

book fireworksWe hope all our American friends had themselves a wonderful (and safe) 4th of July! We’re continuing the fun for the rest of the month, of course, with events and special deals all month long!

First of all, we’ve got a wonderful coupon special going on for just this week! We are running a special web-only coupon sale from Tuesday, July 9th through Thursday, July 11th, for ALL items in the store.  Details can be found at

This special is just one of the many coupon deals we run on our webpage during the year.  Other current deals for the month of July include additional discounts on audio titles and special store trade credit deals on popular titles that we’re actively seeking.  Upcoming deals for August include magazine discounts, and a special “thank you” for teachers.

And then, THIS WEDNESDAY, July 10th at 11:30 AM, ABSW is happy to host the “Musical Ambassador for Children,” Johnette Downing, for a singing story-time gone fun. Johnette is an award-winning children’s book author and musician who will be singing her How to Dress a Po’ Boy book about how to make a sandwich tummy tempting one ingredient at a time, and reading one of her beloved and cultural “pourquoi” or “why” animal stories that explains why certain animals look and live the way they do. Find out more about Johnette and her work through the great interview she gave us here.

For a more adult crowd, Saturday evening, July 27 from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM, Eric James Aubin will be giving a talk and signing his debut book, The Dispensary, a non-fiction romp through the world of hair salons from the viewpoint of those you trust with your hair and appearance. Extremely funny and cutting, stop in to find out what your hairdressers really think about you!

And Worcester Storytellers returns again on Friday, July 26from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM for their thriving Open Mic. The featured reader, D.M. Roberts, will share from her debut novel Letting Go and Holding On, which takes her research on violence in youth and mass shootings and presents it through a fictional tale.

And on Sunday, July 28 from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, Claudia Dillaire will be visiting to talk about Egyptian Magic and her books on the topic. Claudia is a practicing pagan with over twelve years of experience in researching Egyptian magic and culture, which she shares in her three books.

Stay tuned for our August announcements and don’t forget to also visit us on Wednesdays at 7PM, ABSW hosts Spinning Yarns, a chance for you to work on your favorite craft – be it knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking, writing, or whatever – while listening to an audiobook or audio play.  Join us for a relaxing evening listening to good literature!

As always, thank you for your continued support of our independent bookstore at 65 James Street, Worcester, MA, and may your world always be full of wonderful words!
