There are days when you think that this month will never end.
But here's the good news for the kids who have been on the hunt for
Waldo all month long: the 31st of July is almost here! This Thursday,
July 31 from 3-5pm we're hosting the Find Waldo Local Fête!
Kids, wear your best Waldo-themed costumes and bring your stamped
passports to the Booksmith to have a chance to win prizes in our costume
contest, collect some neat Waldo freebies, and maybe a Booksmith gift
card! Get Mom and Dad to dress up, too! Then we can all laugh at them!
Other events this week? We've got a few. Wednesday night brings Amy Bloom and her brand new novel to the events space, followed on Friday by Buddhist teacher Noah Levine, who recommends the Four Noble Truths as a middle way to addiction recovery. The Boston Globe's longtime TV critic Matthew Gilbert
will be with us next Monday to tell all about the colorful cast of
characters that welcomed him and his yellow lab into the fold at Amory
Park, which is just a few blocks from the store!
And there's plenty of other reasons to come to the Booksmith this week. For one, our fantastic Summer Sidewalk Sale continues apace, with fresh gift merchandise showing up everyday, all of it 50% OFF! And
when you come inside, head straight to the middle of the store to spin
the calendar racks. Our always-amazing calendar selection is really
starting to grow. Because 2015 is just around the corner! Seriously, how
fast did July just fly by?
Spend an evening out on the lawn with our friendly neighbors in Jamaica Plain!
Screen on the Green is a series of
free movie screenings on Thursday evenings throughout the summer. Bring a
blanket and to the Loring Greenough House, at 12 South Street right
near the Monument. The movie starts at 8pm, and this week the featured
film will be that timeless classic Casablanca. The rest of the season
will bring Best in Show, The Fifth Element, The Royal Tennenbaums and Hook. For more information, you can contact FirstThursday@centresouth.org.
Come see the beautiful glass specimens of sea creatures by
the same artists who made the famed glass flowers! Available daily,
free with museum admission. Sea Creatures in Glass: Blaschka Models of Marine Invertebrates is a new exhibit at the Harvard Museum of Natural History featuring
recently restored invertebrate models created by famed glass artists
Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka. From delicate jellyfish and anemones to
tentacled squid and bizarre sea slugs, these spectacular models were
commissioned by Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology during the
latter half of the nineteenth century, and many have not been on display
for over a century.
