This week at brookline booksmith

BeSo, Anyway...So, Anyway...lieve it. Friday, November 7 at 6:30pm, Brookline Booksmith is proud to present John Cleese for his memoir So, Anyway at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum’s Smith Hall, in conversation with Here and Now’s Robin Young.  I just fell off my chair.  John Cleese and Robin Young, two of my favorite people, in the same room, talking intimately with only me.  I know there will be a lot of you there as well, but it's really just going to be us three.  There, I fell off my chair again.  Tickets are available starting September 2nd online at, over the phone by calling 617-566-6660, or in-store.  Tickets are $60 and include one copy of So, Anyway...

Events this week include the Boston Globe Book Club this evening (8/27) and the highly-anticipated visit from Daniel J. Levitin tomorrow, with Randy Susan Meyers and Ray Daniel rocking the microphone early next week.

Booksmith is honored to feature on two cool new independent bookstore interactive maps: first at Better Places to Buy Books,
and also on the Independent Bookstore Road Trip Map from the folks at Chin Music Press.  Thanks for thinking of us!++

We are also honored to be voted #1 Bookstore by Boston A-List voters! Thanks everyone! We didn't even have to bribe anyone are just grateful to be nominated at all!

And now for something completely different...

IAround Town know, I know, it's hot out there today. And I know that summer isn't nearly over. But if you are anything like me, you start  looking forward to the first day of Autumn right around the middle of May. Also, you are always thinking about making art. Well cheer up, because the Brookline Arts Center is pleased to host a Fall Open House on Saturday, September 20 from noon-4pm! The Fall Open House will provide the community with the opportunity to meet the BAC’s new Executive Director, Carl Mastandrea, watch demonstrations, participate in free craft making activities, and to learn about new class offerings and welcome new instructors. Two workshops will be offered during the Open House for ages 12+. The Brookline Arts Center's all faculty exhibition curated by Jennifer Okeeffe will also be on view in the BAC's gallery.

The first ever Edible Book Festival is coming on Wednesday, September 3, from 4-7pm! To celebrate the end of the Brookline Public Library's summer reading challenge for adults and teens, we’re inviting everyone to come in to the library to judge the best entries from staff in our Edible Book Festival. We’ll be serving up edible creations themed on books, and you decide who wins the day. Categories will include funniest or punniest, most delicious, and best in show.
