Greetings from the bookstore that’s “bigger on the inside” on 65 James Street! We have had a wonderful weekend here with the Carnival of Children’s Authors and Illustrators and “Together, A Message” with Diane Lewis.

Even more New Arrivals have fallen into our hands! We’ve got some beautiful art books including Edward Gorey and Aubrey Beardsley. Besides those, we’ve also gotten even more cooking and craft books—and to make room for these books, new titles are going out on our Sidewalk Sale carts!

And here is a quick list of other important news points:

  • We’re still hosting donations for Worcester—The City That Reads. Donate gently used books suitable for K-8 students.
  • Enter to win a $50 gift certificate by telling us when you see our ad on WCCA TV 13.
  • Teachers and educators—send your summer reading lists to so we can make sure to stock up.

Now, onto our events! Below is our ongoing list with updates, but watch our website and Facebook page for even more updates!


This Sunday, April 19, we’re starting our new regular event of Hafta Craft and Storytime Family Drop-in! Craft tables will be set up for families from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
