Literary Lights Shine on Summer Reads

Lots of new books have been arriving the past two weeks – most popular on the list being of course The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins, and now the newly released The Room Where it Happened by John Bolton. We’ve also brought in a bunch of new books for the young readers’ room, and have a new shipment of Melissa & Doug items arriving this week.

When we’re not stocking we’re planning — here’s a look at how July is panning out so far:

Living Large Bookclub Returns THIS WEEK!

On July 2nd at 6:30 p.m., we’ll be talking (at long last) about The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek! Those planning to attend should email us at – We’ll keep a list and will have the store rearranged that evening to accommodate up to 10 participants with proper social distancing. If it’s a nice evening we can bring our chairs out to the square (bring your bug spray just in case — we’ll have some available, too!)

New Reader Meet Writer Events Kick Off July 7th

After a short break, Reader Meet Writer, SIBA’s (Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance) virtual author tour program comes back stronger than ever in July! Events take place on Tuesday afternoons (start times between 3-5 PM EDT) and Thursdays at 7 PM EDT.

Wiley Cash, the Conroy Legacy Award recipient, award-winning author, and indie bookseller advocate, will host these amazing virtual events. We have a FANTASTIC slate of authors scheduled for the summer, presenting books in genres and on subjects near and dear to our hearts. A list of the first half of July’s events is below – we’ll show you the rest next week!
