Booksmith's founder Marshall Smith was recently presented with the Cultural Contributor Award by the Brookline Commission for the Arts:
"In recognition of the outstanding contribution of Brookline Booksmith to the cultural life of the Town of Brookline. With unique vision, insight, and dedication, you made Brookline Booksmith into the intellectual heart of the town by: attracting and welcoming loyal browsers, readers, thinkers, authors and artists of all ages through its doors; serving as a standard-bearer of independent bookselling; and encouraging exploration, discussion and exchange."

The Bike-A-Thon is Bikes Not Bombs' largest and most exciting event of the year! Each rider registers and then fundraises at least $150 (and $75 for youth) to support Bikes Not Bombs' Youth Programs and International Programs. Then on June 7th, hundreds of cyclists join together on a ride for social justice along one of our scenic routes through greater Boston. Bike-A-Thon riders are ambassadors of BNB's mission to promote environmental sustainability and social justice, and all fundraising goes directly to making Bikes Not Bombs' programs possible! Bikes Not Bombs uses the bicycle as a vehicle for social change, reclaiming thousands of bicycles each year. They create local and global programs that provide skill development, jobs, and sustainable transportation, programs that mobilize youth and adults to be leaders in community transformation.
