Have you finished your summer reading? Have you gotten the books you need for back-to-school? We are here to help—and can even send books via mail to you!
Besides being thrilled to have copies of Dr. Seuss’s What Pet Should I Get? – we still have a few beautiful, signed Ruth Sanderson books available from when she visited last week! For slightly older audiences—and our beloved geeky friends—we also have the new Felicia Day memoir in stock, too: You’re Never Weird on the Internet. Come and get these pieces of awesome while you can.
And we’ve got TWO things happening THIS WEEK that you might find fun!
THIS Wednesday, August 19 is Dr. Seuss day! In addition to having copies of What Pet Should I Get?, we will be having some special sales all day, along with a few other Seussical surprises.
THIS Saturday, August 22, ALL DAY: Ray Bradbury Day. Celebrate the master author with a day full of special sales, readings, and a 12:30 talk with Alan Ira Gordon, Bradbury expert and author of JOURNEY INTO DANDELION WINE COUNTRY.
Also in August, join us for The Free People’s Artists Workshop, the last Monday of August (August 31) from 7:00-9:00 PM. Networking and feedback from other artists and creators of all types. Co-sponsored by the Worcester County Poetry Association.
And if you’re already planning for some of the wonderful September festivals in the Worcester area, ABSW will be running the Book Nook at Pet Rock Fest on Sunday, September 13 at Becker Colleges. Besides selling books, we’ll be bringing our friend Liz Mugavero, author of the Pawsitively Organic cozy pet mystery series.
September 17 also will bring you a NEW regular event: Doctor Who Talks! Starting at 7:00 PM on the third Thursday of each month, Patty will start hosting talks about the bookstore’s favorite science fiction serial! Stay tuned to find out more.
Of course, as a reminder, our regular events are…
Spinning Yarns Craft and Audiobook Social, every Monday at 7:00PM (sharing space last Monday of the month with The Free People’s Artists Workshop). Bring a craft and enjoy an audiobook or audio drama with other crafty booklovers!
Worcester Storytellers, the fourth Friday of every month from 7-8:30 PM. For the complete updates and schedules, follow Worcester Storytellers on Facebook!
May your world be filled with wonderful words!
