The first video is of Jim Shepard, reading from his fourth collection of short stories, You Think That's Bad. The second is Vivian Swift, author and illustrator of the book, When Wanderers Cease to Roam: A Traveler's Journal of Staying Put. They were both terrific events, and these tiny snippets don't really do them justice. But at least they'll give you a taste of what the evenings were like.
We've increased the number of reading events we're offering at the store, because we're firm believers that nothing you can do online equals the pleasure of being in a room full of readers, engaging with an author and with each other. And signed copies of the books make terrific gifts! You'll find our events schedule on our website, or you can subscribe to our monthly ink-on-paper newsletter that gets delivered to your actual house. Just drop us a note if you'd like to get on our mailing list.
Next Thursday we're thrilled to be hosting Lidia Yuknavitch, local writer and teacher, reading from her recently published memoir, The Chronology of Water, published by the wonderful local press, Hawthorne Books. Please join us -- the fun starts at 7 pm!
