Events Buzz Monday: Plots And Plans For A Great Summer!

The weather outside our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside is hazy, hot and humid, building up for an overcast and rainy week to come.  But inside you can find some of the coolest books, gifts and events in the whole city of Worcester.

If you’re missing the sun this week, pick up a copy of our June new book special, IF I WAS THE SUNSHINE by Julie Fogliano and Loren Long.

Many thanks for those who attended Saturday evening’s Rainbow Readers book discussion group, and to those who stopped by for our small but stalwart Bloomsday memorial.

We are continuing to add in-store and offsite events to our repertoire, and are happy to solicit ideas from the New England community.
