Happy April Vacation to all of our students (and parents spending time with students)! We hope you are having a splendid time. If you’re looking for things to do, our “bigger on the inside” bookstore has a lot to offer this week!
First, check out our ever-changing Seasonal Sales Carts before you even come in our door, and then there’s our New Arrivals just as you walk in! And created especially for National Poetry Month, we’ve made our Local Authors display to highlight the poetry and chap books of our community. We also have displayed back copies of The Worcester Review and other literary magazines at extra-low prices. And if you’re interested in the magic of the seasons, we have discounted our limited supply of back copies of The Witches Almanac.
Thank you to everyone who came out this past Saturday for our Rainbow Readers LGBTQIA Book Club as we discussed Hexbreaker by Jordan L. Hawk.
THIS WEEK, in addition to the above-mentioned special sales displays, we also are offering some special daytime events. Today, Monday, we had a drop-in Crafts and Stories: Butterflies, Bugs, and Spiders.
