Year Two Bestsellers to be revealed this Saturday!

The seasons have come and spun the wheel again, and it is just a few more days until we are celebrating our second anniversary. We have learned a lot in our sophomore year, and quite a bit of that has been centered around what our customers love to read. 

FIND WALDO IN DALLAS!

Iconic Children’s Book Character Creates Summertime Fun to Support the Movement to “Shop Local”

Where’s Waldo? In Dallas, of course! The iconic children’s book character in the red-and-white-striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting 20 local businesses in our community this July.

Independence Day Reads

There’s something uniquely American in the celebration of Independence Day, beginning with the day we choose to commemorate. Independence is not celebrated with the anniversary of victory at Yorktown or the signing of the Treaty of Paris. Rather, it is the day of the people’s Declaration of Independence, the day the founders decided we would no longer be a colony of Britain. That stubborn self-reliance has woven itself into the very tapestry of our nation. To celebrate the revolutionary nature of our founding and our freedom, here are some of our favorites.

Pride Recommendations

50 years have passed since the Stonewall Uprising and the start of Pride.

Because it’s important for those without other outlets to have a safe space to read and see stories that include them, this month we feature fiction and nonfiction favorites, spanning all ages, with characters who are LGBTQIA+.

FURIOUS HOURS

The literary world is abuzz about Casey Cep’s book, FURIOUS HOURS, which explores Harper Lee’s final, unpublished work and the Alabama murder trial that inspired Ms. Lee to spend years investigating the case and penning pages upon pages of prose about it. Ms. Lee called her work-in-progress “The Reverend,” and it was to be the culmination of her creative career, coming seventeen years after “To Kill a Mockingbird” and twelve since publication of her friend Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood,” which she helped him research. Ms. Cep examines the racially charged trial, the enigmatic Ms.
