This week at brookline booksmith

Booksmith's design and buying teams have been knocking their heads together to assemble a beautiful presentation of all the best that your local independent bookstore has to offer. The first weekly Brookline Booksmith Gift Guide will arrive in your inbox soon (subscribe to our mailing list at the bottom of the newsletter page), and inside it you will find the very best of the books that have caught our heart and minds. If a book isn't what you're looking for, our outstanding Giftsmith team has hand-picked a bunch of great ideas for anyone and everyone on your list. We hope our Gift Guide provides a spark of inspiration, and we sure hope it brings you into the store this holiday season.  We can't wait to see you!

Oh, and don't forget that next Saturday, Nov. 28th is Small Business Saturday. Whether you will be shopping with us here in Brookline, or somewhere closer to wherever you call home, do the right thing and keep your money in your community by shopping local and independent.


Thanks to the Boston Parents Paper for putting Booksmith on the top of the list of Massachusetts bookstores!

Brookline's First Light event started eighteen years ago in Washington Square when several businesses came together to spread some holiday cheer by hanging snowflakes in their storefront windows. The glowing flakes illuminated the square, signaling the start of the holiday season, and they've been coming back every year since. First Light has grown into the Town’s annual winter festival, showcasing the talents of local artists, musicians and performers at businesses and other venues throughout town. Join your neighbors in Coolidge Corner tomorrow, Thursday November 19 from 5-8pm, and let's spread some serious peace and love all together!
