Events Buzz Monday: Back to School Planning

08102015 - Miss Bindergarten picWe’re getting into back-to-school season here at 65 James Street. If you haven’t gotten your summer reading done yet, stop in and see if we can help! Or, if you’re getting ready for school, whether for early grades like Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten or later grades, we might be able to help with that, too.

Also, just in time for school and Dr. Seuss Day on Wednesday, August 19, we’ve got copies of What Pet Should I Get?—the recently-found manuscript and sketches (down to notes on coloring) of the late Theodor Seuss Geisel, found by his wife and secretary.

Now, onto what to expect for August events! As always, keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.

 Wednesday, August 19, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM: Cat in the Hat Day. Join us for some special sales of Cat in the Hat and other Seuss books—and perhaps a few other Seussical surprises!

Saturday, August 22, ALL DAY: Ray Bradbury Day. Celebrate the master author with a day full of special sales, readings, and a 12:30 talk with Alan Ira Gordon, Bradbury expert and author of JOURNEY INTO DANDELION WINE COUNTRY. More speakers TBA

And if you’re already planning for some of the wonderful September festivals in the Worcester area, ABSW will be running the Book Nook at Pet Rock Fest on Sunday, September 13 at Becker Colleges. Besides selling books, we’ll be bringing our friend Liz Mugavero, author of the Pawsitively Organic cozy pet mystery series.

Of course, as a reminder, our regular events are…

Spinning Yarns Craft and Audiobook Social, every Monday at 7:00PM (sharing space last Monday of the month with The Free People’s Artists Workshop). Bring a craft and enjoy an audiobook or audio drama with other crafty booklovers!

Worcester Storytellers, the fourth Friday of every month from 7-8:30 PM. For the complete updates and schedules, follow Worcester Storytellers on Facebook!

The Free People’s Artists Workshop, the last Monday of August from 7:00-9:00 PM. Networking and feedback from other artists and creators of all types. Co-sponsored by the Worcester County Poetry Association. Future meetings TBA.

As always, watch ABSW calendar and our Facebook Page for more details and updates.

May your world be filled with wonderful words!
