Friends Bookstore News October 5 - 8
The Kalamazoo Public Library and the ACLU have joined together to celebrate your freedom, as an American citizen, to freely read whatever you choose. The celebration takes place this Friday from 5 to 8 pm at Central Library. This celebration follows Banned Books Week which ended last Saturday. We have pulled together many of the titles that are frequently challenged or banned somewhere in the United States. Come down and look through these books. You might feel motivated to exercise your right to choose.
It’s October and that means Halloween will be here soon! We have a cart full of wonderful Halloween books for children and adults. This collection contains books filled with costume ideas, scary stories fit for little ones, and spine-tingling stories for teens and adults about werewolves, witches, vampires, and ghosts.
If you enjoy Art books, you will definitely want to check out our Art spotlight. Michelangelo, Manet, Giotto, O’Keefe, Gauguin, Leibovitz, Picasso, these are a few of the names you will see as you peruse this collection.
Finally, select trade fiction is still priced at only 50¢ each. This is a super bargain and not a sale that you will see repeated often. Stock up now.
