This week at brookline booksmith

Even if you've been coming to Booksmith for years and years, and you feel like you are intimate with the many moods of the store, watch out: we can still surprise you. Learn about Booksmith's boisterous origin story from our founder Marshall Smith; about Lisa's dramatic vision to take Booksmith literally to the next level; and Zoe's possibly apocryphal memory of our bookstore cat in the Interview With a Bookstore: Brookline Booksmith.

Your newsletter editor will be vacationing for a few days, so we'll ask you to soldier on without your weekly newsletter next Wednesday.  The 8/26 edition has the full event listing for the next two weeks -  Christopher Moore, Michelle Tea and Bill Clegg are the highlights - you can check out our events page for more.

Unfortunately, our event with Joe Hill and The Nerdist Panel has been postponed to later this year. We'll let you know when we have a date for it, but in the meantime you can either keep the ticket you've got, or get a full refund. Just stop by or give us a call at 617-566-6660.
