Adult Fiction Book Club: The Secret Book of Flora Lea
Wednesday, January 24 at 7:30pm


Join booksellers Andi and Sierra on Wednesday, January 24 at 7:30pm for the next meeting of our Adult Fiction Book Club!


This onth, we will be discussing The Secret Book of Flora Lea by Patti Callahan Henry. When a woman discovers a rare book that has connections to her past, long-held secrets about her missing sister and their childhood spent in the English countryside during World War II are revealed. A refreshingly original novel about the bond between sisters, the complications of conflicted love, and the enduring magic of storytelling, this will be a great book to discuss, with snacks and beverages.



Middle Grade Book Club: Adia Kelbara and the Circle of Shamans
Sunday, January 28 at 4pm


It’s the next meeting of our middle grade book club for ages 9+! Led by bookseller extraordinaire Lorilee, we hope to introduce interested readers to amazing new books and the opportunity to talk about them in a fun, relaxed group setting. Even if you didn't like or finish the book, come to the meeting–different opinions make for great discussions!


This month’s book is Adia Kelbara and the Circle of Shamans by Isi Hendrix, a fast-paced, witty, and big-hearted debut fantasy trilogy about a twelve-year-old apprenticing in the kitchens at the prestigious Academy of Shamans, who must ally with a snarky goddess and a knife-wielding warrior to save her kingdom.  Get 10% off the book in-store or online now through January 28. Please email [email protected] to RSVP.
