If you do wish to venture out in the weather, Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester can give you some good reasons to visit 65 James Street. Besides all the books we have, we are also hosting some really excellent events this month.
Coming this Saturday, January 11th, from 2-5PM, Gayle Suzanne, Boston Life Coach for Abused Women, will be visiting ABSW for a speaking and signing agreement with her debut inspirational book It’s In The Little Things. If you’re looking for ways to boost your self-esteem and be a better person as part of your 2014 resolutions, come and listen to Suzanne’s empowering words.
Then, on Friday, January 24 from 7-8:30 PM, Worcester Storytellers returns with their open mic, featuring Victor Infante, editor of the online literary journal, Radius: Poetry From the Center to the Edge, and author of City of Insomnia, a poetry collection from Write Bloody Publishing. His poems and stories have been published in numerous periodicals, including The Collagist, Pearl, Chiron Review, Word Riot and The Nervous Breakdown, and anthologies such as Poetry Slam: The Competitive Art of Performance Poetry, Spoken Word Revolution Redux and Aim For the Head: An Anthology of Zombie Poetry.
And finishing up the month on Sunday, January 26, from 2-4PM, ABSW is proud to welcome WWII veteran, historian, and the oldest columnist for the Telegram & Gazette, Albert B. Southwick, who will be here to sign his latest releases: WWII Correspondence between Albert B. Southwick and Maple Hill Farm: February-June 1942, a collection of letters written to his mother during his service during the Second World War; Down on the Farm: Volume I (1956-1958), which includes his essays and articles about growing up on a farm in Leicester, MA; and Albert B.
