Happy February, everyone!
Happy “Black History Month”, as well as a month for “Boosting your Self-Esteem”, and “Teen Dating Violence Awareness.” We’ve already got our children’s display up for Black History, and we’re at 65 James Street are putting out displays and more books for our other themes this week.
We apologize for any inconvenience to anyone who came out to see Liz Mugavero this weekend. She was stricken with a migraine and unable to drive, but we are rescheduling her for Saturday, February 27, from 2:00-4:00, so you still have a chance to see her and have her sign your favorite Pawsitively Organic pet mystery books!
THIS WEEK, we’re gearing up to host the Writers Coffeehouse New England on Saturday, February 6, from 3:00-6:00 PM at the bookstore.
Led by bestselling authors Christopher Golden and James A. Moore, this Q&A Discussion of All Things Writing has moved all around the U.S., and it’s stopping by our little “bigger on the inside” bookstore. Come and ask about anything related to publishing, the writing life, and more—and get answers from people who make a living doing what they love.
We’ll even have coffee and light snacks!
