This week will be a difficult one for ABSW as we’ve had a death in the family. As we work through this time, handling wake and funeral arrangements, the store may have abbreviated hours this week, opening late or closing early. We apologize for the inconvenience and we thank you for your understanding.
We are still open today, Monday, August 24, for our full day until 8:00 PM and we still welcome our friends for Spinning Yarns starting at 7:00. We also still expect to be open and hosting Worcester Storytellers from 7:00-8:30 on Friday, August 28, which will be featuring Ruth Bolton.
We are also looking forward to hosting 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.
This past Saturday had a good show for our Ray Bradbury Day, featuring our talk with Alan Ira Gordon, author of Journey into Dandelion Wine Country, among many other things. Thank you to everyone who came out this past weekend!
Coming in September:
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.
As always, keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.
May your world be filled with wonderful words!
