This week at brookline booksmith

It's only the middle of November, but the chill in the air sure makes it seem like the holidays are right around the corner. This cold snap, coupled with Brookline's First Light and the upcoming Small Business Saturday, means the Booksmith is the place to come in and warm up in the company of your neighbors. This Thursday evening, from 5-8, kick off your holiday shopping at First Light, Brookline's annual winter festival. There will be live music, art and entertainment for all ages springing up all around town! Come out, enjoy the night, and then Tweet or Instagram your festival photos with #firstlightbrookline and be entered to win a prize!

Small Business Saturday®, created by American Express in 2010, is a nationwide movement aimed at encouraging people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This year, the big day is Nov 29th, and if you want to take part, and give our store or any other small business a little push this season, you need to register your American Express card between now and 11:59 PM MST on Nov. 29th. Card Members can register to get up to $30 back when they Shop Small® on Small Business Saturday®!

Were you here for that Jeff Kinney book signing event on Sunday? I was sweeping up the store before opening time on Monday morning, and there were straws of hay everywhere. What the heck was going on here?

I don't even really know what this is all about, but if I were a kid I would definitely want to build a Box Tower City.

The whole gang will be constructing a box tower city just for the Children's Room!
