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?!
