This week at brookline booksmith

If you've been in recently, it will have been hard to miss the continent-sized collection of 2015 calendars that has blossomed in the center of the store. Why wait for the new year? The best selection is here and now, so spin those racks and find the one that's right for you the next time you come in the store.

We still have seats for the event with Joyce Carol Oates tomorrow night at 6pm at the Coolidge, you can call 617-566-6660 or click here to get your $5 ticket (or a free ticket with the purchase of her new book!) The week continues with the BASH Reading Series and visits from Chris Guillebeau, John Scalzi, and a trio of poets from Graywolf Press.
Steve Almond will be downstairs in the events space next Thursday, September 18th at 7pm, reluctantly but determinedly not watching the big game, and making the case for his manifesto Against Football.

On Monday a couple dozen members of The Booksmith Book Club met to talk about Anthony Marra's A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, giving the novel 4.3 stars out of 5. The next book on the list is a staff favorite, Paul Yoon's Snow Hunters, and the club will get together on October 13th to discuss.

YAround Townou are invited to a free poetry writing workshop, Caring for Our Earth, led by Judith Steinbergh on September 16, 6:50-8:20 pm at the Brookline Public Library, Coolidge Corner Branch. The workshop is co-sponsored by the Brookline Commission for the Arts and Climate Action Brookline. With some guidance and much choice, try your hand at writing a poem about something from the natural world that intrigues and moves you, something you’d wish to protect or preserve. Novice and experienced writers are welcome. Please contact Judith at with your name and contact information if you plan to attend. Space is limited.
