Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

03132017 - pictureWe are halfway through March, and another major snowstorm is on the horizon. Part of the New England charm, perhaps?

In any case, if you don’t feel like leaving your house until the weather straightens out, don’t worry. You don’t have to come out to our 65 James Street location—we can send books to you! Visit our website for more information.

For those of you who are visiting us, have you seen our new art books shelves? We have created a new little case of just art books—all priced UNDER $10! If you are a fan of art and art history, check out these little gems.

Thank you to everyone who has left us reviews on Trip Advisor! You can still leave us a review there—but did you know we are also on Yelp? If you feel so inclined to share your experiences at our store, here is where you can leave a Yelp! review.

Thank you to everyone who came out for Michael Hartigan this weekend. We had a great time chatting about road trips, our inner fears, some of our favorite books, and the experience and research that went into his novel, Stone Angels. We still have a few signed copies of the book in the store if you missed the event but still would love to check out this great road trip thriller!

THIS WEEK on THURSDAY, March 16, from 7:00 – 8:00 PM, we host our regular Doctor Who Discussion Night. This month, our discussion topic is “Machines and Immortals.” How have machines and immortals affected the Doctor’s travels? Who have been friends, who have been enemies? Come and talk about it.

Also THIS WEEK on SATURDAY, March 18, from 6:00-8:00 PM, our LGBTQIA BOOK CLUB Rainbow Readers, Discusses Ariah by BR Sanders.

Ariah’s magical training has been interrupted. Forced to rely on a mentor, Dirva, who is not who he claims to be, and a teacher who is foreign and powerful, Ariah is drawn into a culture wholly different from the elven one that raised him.

As his friendship with Dirva’s brother blossoms into a surprising romance, and he slowly learns how to control the dangerous magic in his blood, life finally appears to be coming together for Ariah—but love and security are cut short by a tyrannical military empire bent on expanding its borders.

War, betrayal, passion, and confusion follow Ariah as his perilous journey leads him beyond the walls of the Empire, and into unfamiliar territory within himself. Along the way, he’ll discover just how much he’s willing to give up to find his place in the world, and he’ll learn what it means to sacrifice himself for freedom—and for love.

And we have CANCELLED the Jenny Hudson event on Sunday, March 19, due to a scheduling conflict with the author. We will reschedule in October.
