Thank you to everyone who came out and made this weekend of events extra fabulous! We had a wonderful time with our special guests Ellen Wittlinger, Heidi Stemple, and Jane Yolen! If you didn’t make it out, there are still a few books left from each of the authors, signed.
Signed books make beautiful holiday presents or Thanksgiving gifts—and they don’t require you to wake up early and brave crowds on Black Friday. Just stop into our cozy nook of a bookstore that’s “bigger on the inside” at 65 James Street. Besides the authors we hosted this past weekend, we have many other special, signed copies of books to fit the needs of the readers in your life!
Of course—there’s still more happening this month that you might want to come in for, too!
Take a look!

THIS SUNDAY, at the special date and time of November 19, 3:00 – 5:00, Rainbow Readers discusses Soldier’s Scoundrel by Cat Sebastian.
Jack Turner grew up in the darkness of London’s slums, born into a life of crime and willing to do anything to keep his belly full and his siblings safe. Now he uses the tricks and schemes of the underworld to help those who need the kind of assistance only a scoundrel can provide. His distrust of the nobility runs deep and his services do not extend to the gorgeous high-born soldier who personifies everything Jack will never be.
After the chaos of war, Oliver Rivington craves the safe predictability of a gentleman’s life-one that doesn’t include sparring with a ne’er-do-well who flouts the law at every turn. But Jack tempts Oliver like no other man has before. Soon his yearning for the unapologetic criminal is only matched by Jack’s pleasure in watching his genteel polish crumble every time they’re together.
And later in November…
