Not only are we thrilled to witness the rare and wonderful Jane Gardam touch down in our humble events space this evening (Tuesday 5/14 at 7pm), and not only will Lee Woodruff follow her on Wednesday evening, but then, on Thursday we have something really big in store.
For one night only we will suspend our strict NO DOGS ALLOWED IN THE STORE EVER policy, because that perfectly poised pooch Maddie - wait, that's not right.
This week we will be extending our EVERY DOG MUST BE IN THE STORE AT ALL TIMES policy to our events series - nope, not right either.
This week we have a dog in our events series. Dogs are always welcome in the Booksmith. Especially author dogs. (Maddie will be appearing with Theron Humphrey, who I am told is also interesting, although human.)
Our week continues with Breakwater, the rescheduled BASH event, and a panel of book-crafters all geared up to inspire you! All of this is free!
And now that Mother's Day is behind us (but never forgotten, Moms, never forgotten) it's time to start thinking about Dads, as well as this year's crop of graduates. Check out the fresh selection of gifts on our front table the next time you come in. You're sure to find something that is suitable for even the most hard to shop for recipient.
In Orbit: Collaborative Performance Celebrating the Sibling Relationship
Author Jennifer Mann and violinist Audrey Wright will perform an evening filled with word and song to bring to life the relationships between siblings and in particular, sisters. Mann will read selections from her own writing and other books by Jeffrey Kluger and Maurice Sendak that highlight the sibling relationship. Wright will intersperse solo works to capture the mood of each reading by composers such as John Harbison, Paul Hindemith, Gyorgy Kurtag, and Eugene Ysaye. This event will be held at the Coolidge Corner branch of the Brookline Public Library on Thursday May 16, 2013, 7pm. For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2013 Brookline Bike Parade will be held on Sunday, May 19th at Amory Park. Bicycle Beacon Street like you've never done before - with no cars to get in your way! Ride the entire length of our historic avenue - both east and west - all car free! You'll do a 5-mile loop with Brookline Police leading the way, riding with us, and covering our backs. This is a ride for cyclists at almost every level. Registration and bike safety checks begin at 12 noon and the ride starts at 1:00 PM. Remember to register online and you can skip the line the day of the parade!Get more booksmith on the brookline blogsmith,
