Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

01122015 - Little Inspiration Book CoverWe hope all our friends and patrons are staying warm during this cold snap! At least it’s good weather to curl up under a blanket with a book. During this time of year, though, please keep an eye on our Facebook page for any news regarding early closings or late openings due to weather.

We had an absolutely spectacular event this past Saturday with Paul Macek as we celebrated an early birthday for Edgar Allan Poe and completely sold out of our entire stock of Illustrated History of Edgar Allan Poe. More books are on their way in! Thank you to everyone who stopped by to join us!

Look at what else we’ve got coming up!

THIS SATURDAY, January 17 from 5-7 PM, Medium/Psychic Diane Lewis will be speaking about and signing from her new book, A Little Inspiration. “Being yourself, not to mention being your best self, sometimes can be the hardest task of the day,” is the challenge that A Little Inspiration helps readers through. It’s inspirational messages – full of the love and compassion Diane is known for – help guide readers to discover and live their inner greatness. Originally from the Boston area, Diane Lewis now resides in Central Massachusetts and reads at a number of venues throughout the state and into Connecticut.

NEXT SATURDAY, January 24, from 3-5 PM, join us for Tea and Faeries with children’s author T.J. Wooldridge as she celebrates the release of her most recent book, The Earl’s Childe. Light refreshments and tea will be served. Wooldridge, whose won EPIC awards and been nominated for a Stoker for her adult horror, will read some of her favorite scenes, as well as chat about the history and mythology she brings to her children’s books, why dark and scary adventures work for children, and what information she learned about Scottish and British history for these books.
