Happy Valentine’s Day this week!

Do you have a sweetheart who loves books? Buy them the perfect gift—or get them a gift certificate so they can pick out the next book they will love!

Thank you to everyone who came out to see Les Johnson and Sharon Healy-Yang this week!  We had a lot of fun at both events.  We geeked out about space, science, and more with Les, and Sharon brought us mystery, history, and style! If you weren’t able to make it, we do have a few signed copies of both authors’ books still in the store, so come and grab them. (Maybe your Valentine needs a good science fiction or mystery in their life!)

Whether you’ve got a Valentine to celebrate with or not, we still do have events you’ll love happening this week…

THIS THURSDAY, February 15, 7:00 PM we have our Doctor Who Discussion Night: The Daleks!

Let’s talk about the Daleks—the Doctor’s enemies that we have loved to hate from Classic Who to new Who! EXTERMINATE some time on your calendar to join us.

And THIS SATURDAY, February 17, 6:00 – 8:00 PM, join us for Rainbow Readers Discusses Peter Darling by Austin Chant.

We have copies of this book already in the store so you can be prepared to talk about this transgender take on the classic Peter Pan tale.

Ten years ago, Peter Pan left Neverland to grow up, leaving behind his adolescent dreams of boyhood and resigning himself to life as Wendy Darling. Growing up, however, has only made him realize how inescapable his identity as a man is.

But when he returns to Neverland, everything has changed: the Lost Boys have become men, and the war games they once played are now real and deadly. Even more shocking is the attraction Peter never knew he could feel for his old rival, Captain Hook—and the realization that he no longer knows which of them is the real villain.

And NEXT WEEK is school vacation week, so we’ve got some fun daytime evennts for families!
