Happy new year, everyone! We have a lot of fun events, activities, and displays coming up. First up is our first book signing of the year! On January 27th, from 11-1pm, we’re hosting Jim Kesey, Deb Logan (A.K.A. Debbie Mumford), and Cathy Nelson. Jim is from Salem and he’s the cousin of Ken Kesey, Deb is an amazing YA and Middle-grade author from Vancouver, and Cathy Nelson is a Christian self-help author. We’re really excited to host these three. Books by all three authors are in stock if you want to take a look at them beforehand. Here’s the event details again:

Three Author Booksigning

Saturday, January 27th

11-1 pm

We’re still finalizing the details for our Febuary and March signings, as well as this year’s Independent Bookstore Day celebration. We’ll announce those here and on our Facebook page as soon as we can.

We have a lot of great Valentine’s Day merchandise in stock. We have a wide selection of kids books, greeting cards, and gift items for your special someone. We also have a few Valentine card packs left if your kids need some for their classmates.

If you don’t have a special someone, come check out our Blind Date With A Book display. We’ve taken some of our favorite novels and written very brief dating profiles for each one. So get some takeout, pour a glass of your favorite beverage, and take a chance on falling in love with a book! No matter how it turns out, it’s much cheaper and far less traumatizing than a real blind date.
