(We’ll be reading Michael Chabon’s wonderful Wonder Boys for March Reading Circle). Facebook Reading Circle Event Page Here.
Seattle Magazine recently did a nice write-up on us! (Thank you Sarah Murphy). A few people saw it and decided to visit the ‘new bookstore in town. You bet you can share it! Seattle Magazine Link.
Please continue to let your friends, neighbors, acquaintances and even strangers about Kirkland’s bookstore!
Don’t forget that every Wednesday at 11 a.m. we have StoryTime for the young ones! It’s on our events calendar and there’s a StoryTime Facebook Events Page too.
We also have several new books ON SALE. You'll find them on the BOOK TREE and a few others on the table in the back. Our new and used stock changes regularly. We're happy to match you up with a book - just ask.
We had 2 memorable events last weekend- a free workshop and reading with Carolyne Wright and Beth Myhr; and writer-historian Paula Becker talking about iconic Northwest author Betty (The Egg and I) MacDonald. Thanks to those who were able to attend.
Coming soon: A very special afternoon with best-selling author Robert Dugoni on Saturday, March 4th and not one… not two.. but three Pacific Northwest authors with three very different books will be presenting, talking and signing on Sunday March 5th. Dugoni Event Page and 3 Author Event Page .
And our Third Saturday Workshop and Reading program in March will feature Washington State Poet Laureate Tod Marshall (so put that one on your calendars too). Some Tod Marshall info here.
You’ve probably heard that University Bookstore in Bellevue has closed. They may open in another location on the East side, but nothing definite at this point.
If you are part of a book club and would like us to carry upcoming book club picks for your group, let us know! BookTree is always happy to order any book in print for you --often we can have it within a few days. Thanks for supporting YOUR local bookstore!
