We were open on July 4th and the parade floats were right outside our doors. A lot of people who weren't sure where the bookstore is- 'discovered' us! Some even bought some books!

This is a very special event. You need to get RESERVATIONS. It is co-sponsored by and takes place at the Kirkland Woman's Club (across from City Hall). Get on the list by visiting or emailing BOOKTREE. ( email@example.com ).
From a forgotten moment in history comes an inspiring novel about finding strength and courage in the most unimaginable places. The Lost History of Stars was inspired by Dave Boling’s grandfather’s own experience as a soldier during the Boer War. 14 year old Lettie is a figure of abiding grace, and her story is richly drawn and impossible to forget.
“The author of the award-winning Guernica returns with a compelling story of war, violence, and tragedy… this story gives a touching and detailed perspective on a cruel war in which children are the innocent victims. This beautifully narrated work will appeal to fans of both historical and general fiction.” —Library Journal
“The Lost History of Stars is a heart-wrenching yet ultimately uplifting story of an extraordinary young woman and her family, who are forced to endure unimaginable hardship at the hands of a brutal war. Dave Boling’s brilliant novel is a meditation on the resiliency of the soul and the spirit, and will long be remembered.”—Garth Stein, bestselling author of A Sudden Light and Racing in the Rain
A valuable testament providing glimmers, however scant, of hope for humanity.”—Kirkus Reviews
