September 2017Banned Books Week 2017!

The week of September 24 2017. Banned Books Week. For this year’s celebration, the coalition of organizations that sponsors Banned Books Week will emphasize the importance of the First Amendment, which guarantees our inherent right to read.

Vote for your favorite banned book! Not a complete or all-inclusive list, much editing was needed to fit the list on only one page... the list here. [PDF]
Lists can be printed, filled out and then turned in the next time you are in the Bookshop.
Or take a look at the list, choose your favorite title, and email that title directly to Michelle!
She will share results in store, and on facebook, and here on the web site.

Join us and celebrate your right to read -- abolutely anything you want to read!

cover: homegoing
September 7 & 20, 2017.
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi.
Winner of the PEN/ Hemingway Award

This debut novel follows the parallel paths of two half sisters born into different villages in Ghana, and their descendants through eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. Yaa Gyasi’s extraordinary novel illuminates slavery’s troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed—and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.
