Third Thursday and Back to School Weekend!

Back to School Looms

On Thursday and Friday afternoon we’ll do a bag giveaway to students/teachers (while supplies last!). Each bag will include a few useful items, plus a “Book Buck” to spend in the store! Come in and ask us how to nab a bag, and make sure to take a “shelfie” of yourself when you visit!

Our browsing table will also include a selection of favorite back to school titles for students of all ages!

Celebrating Author Toni Morrison

Toni Morrison passed away this past Monday; she was 88. She was the first black woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature (1993) and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1988, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012. Her books about black history in America included “Beloved,” “The Bluest Eye” and “Sula.” We have a selection of her work available. Rest in peace, Toni!
