August was a very good month for sales at the bookstore (after quite a poor July) and we’re poised for a busy fall. There are some notable authors visiting including J. William Galbraith and Elizabeth May. (See the list above for details)

Our big event is the celebration of the 20 years since the founding of the store which we are marking on September 13th. This is a tribute to the original founders of the store -Jean Barton and Mary Mahoney- but also to the many staff and volunteers who have contributed to the success of the store during that time. Come in and join us. We are marking the event with a one day 20% reduction on everything that is in stock -books, cards, calendars, games etc (everything except the Globe & Mail!). The sale is for in stock items only and does not cover special orders. Take your opportunity to celebrate too! There are some great 2015 calendars that recently arrived.

The Titles@Table40 opening event of the season is on September 28 starting at 6.00p.m. Frances Itani will discuss the background and inspiration for her latest book “Tell” set in the post First World War period. Of course, you also get the famous Fraser Cafe cuisine -a three course meal served family style at harvest tables and you’ll get to meet some of your fellow book-lovers. The cost is $40 and places must be reserved in advance with a $20 deposit. The event is currently sold out. Watch for next month’s announcement.

Some of our staff are involved in a fun project in co-operation with the New Edinburgh News. They are busy reviewing classics- mostly visiting some classics which we all should have read but many didn’t. It is quite a challenge to review such well known works. Watch for the results in the NE News shortly. There is a growing trend to re-read the classics. The store has a special section near the back for those interested.

Our two book clubs resume this month. You are welcome to participate
