August 2019 Books Around the Corner Newsletter

AUGUST 2019 NEWSLETTER

 

It’s less than a week until August! We will be closed on Sunday July 28th. Tomorrow we’ll have Drag Queen Storytime with Poison Waters at 1pm and then Harry Potter Happy Hour 6-8pm! Next Wednesday is our Harry Potter Birthday Party 4-6pm. Head to Facebook for more details. If you haven’t yet head to our Book Clubs page above and see all the wonderful and diverse book clubs we offer monthly and seasonally! The next Cookbook Club is full and we’ll be doing our next one in January (it will be a special baking one). Join us on Saturday August 24th at 6-8pm as we welcome local alternative rock duo Dreadlight for an intimate acoustic performance. The first part of their three part album, an EP titled LIMBO, is out now. This is a free show but donations are welcome and will go directly to Dreadlight for graciously performing at Books Around the Corner.

Dreadlight is a female, alternative, hard rock duo from Portland, Oregon. Songwriters Kandra Tolvstad (Bass/Vocals) and Toria Beck (Guitar/Vocals) met in high school and began collaborating musically at 14 and 16. Coming from different musical worlds, the duo are developing a unique sound where sweet harmonies soar over heavy instrumentation, an experience pleasantly headbangable. The two write from their own experiences, whether that be the dramas of growing up or their struggles with anxiety and depression. They find it important to write about the deeper, more personal topics of life to show people, along with themselves, that they are not alone. Dreadlight strives to inspire people to be mindful of themselves, their mental health, and their communities.

A reminder special orders can be placed twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays by 11am. Did you know we not only order but we preorder?! For no additional cost you can have your book ready to pick up on the Tuesday it is released. This also helps support authors and our bookshop. Ask us for more details the next time you’re in!  Another service we’ll be offering to our customers is wish lists! Provide us with your name and any books on your wish list and we’ll add them to our system so your friends and family can check in with us for birthdays and holidays. We also offer gift certificates too!

DID YOU KNOW….We host birthday parties, baby showers, company parties, and more! Email us for rates and availability at info@booksaroundthecorner.com

July 2019 Books Around the Corner Newsletter

JULY 2019 NEWSLETTER

We had a wonderful Book Talk Book Club this month. The books discussed by members of the community are featured to the left! We have a very busy July in store for all of you. After that we will be focusing on book clubs, potential Skype Author Visits, and continuing to grow the collection rather than on events. We will kick off July with local picture book author, Tonya Lippert for a special storytime on Saturday July 6th 1pm and later in the month we will host Drag Queen Storytime with Poison Waters (donations are welcome to cover the cost) July 27th 1pm and before that a special storytime with Mayor Bemis to support the Gresham Reads program! A hybrid author reading and musical performance with Stevan Allred and Sky in the Road as well as TWO Harry Potter events! If you want more information head to our book club pages, new homepage and the events calendar. All monthly book clubs are updated on the book clubs page not below under upcoming events because we now have EIGHT book clubs!

Please join us on Friday July 5th 6-8pm for our Local Artists Showcase. Light refreshments and wine will be served. This month’s featured artist is Eleni Kennard. Eleni Kennard is an artist from Portland, OR. They are a queer, intersectional feminist, as well as a musician, storyteller, and cat-parent. They dedicate their art to their grandmother, who immigrated here from Seoul, Korea. Without a safe place to build the life she wanted, she came here and raised their mother and her sisters. They are forever grateful to be lucky enough to be here, when so many other families are trying to build a better life like their grandmother, but are facing horror at the border. They create art to try to create more beauty in this dark time. Currently donating 30% of the proceeds of their artwork to help refugees in crisis, you can find them at mothchaotic.com or @mothchaotic on Instagram.

June 2019 Books Around the Corner Newsletter

JUNE 2019 NEWSLETTER

By attending BookExpo this past week we’ve been able to find new and diverse titles as well as new bookish items from other independent owners to fill Books Around the Corner and become an even better community bookshop for all of you. We can’t wait to share new titles with you and have even more titles to giveaway AND some for ARC Book Club. June is filled with graduations and Father’s Day. We have plenty of ideas for the perfect gift whether it’s for your dad or a grad! We’ll have even more ideas next week. Since it’s June we will have a special table dedicated to Pride Month. Stop by this weekend to check out those and all the new books and bookish items we have in stock. If you want more information head to our book club pages, new homepage and the events calendar. All monthly book clubs are updated on the book clubs page not below under upcoming events because we now have EIGHT book clubs!

Please join us on Friday June 7th 6-8pm for our Local Artists Showcase. Light refreshments and wine will be served. This month’s featured artists are from MHCC’s Community Ed. ART 4FP class. The instructoris Ketty Gattman Miller, a retired elementary teacher from GBSD. She has taught this eclectic mix of artists for four years because she has a passion for art and enjoys sharing it with others.  Students are given an optional theme each week and choose the medium in which they want to express themselves. These include graphite or colored pencils, watercolors, acrylics, oils, pastels, collage, mixed media, etc. The class has bonded as an art family, always supporting and encouraging each other. Everyone finds the weekly three hour class to be relaxing, fun, and rewarding. The subject matter and artistic styles vary from week to week. They chat and joke, listen to music,and eat snacks, all while concocting masterful art pieces. You are invited to come see samples of their work anytime this month.

In the upcoming months you will see an increase in the number of author readings/signings and a few acoustic musical performances. We have some incredibly talented writers and musicians in the Portland and regional area and want to showcase them. You can support them by buying their book or CD at Books Around the Corner, attending their reading or performance, and spreading the word about our book clubs and events.

A reminder special orders can be placed twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays by 11am. Did you know we not only order but we preorder?!
