Coming Up at Longfellow Books...!
Join us Saturday, September 30th, at 6 pm to celebrate the launch of Panio Gianopoulos' collection of short stories, How to Get into Our House and Where We Keep the Money!
A love song to the power of the inadvertent and unplanned, this collection tracks a gaggle of lost souls--a bewildered young medical student; a man jealous of his girlfriend's love for her tiny Pomeranian; and a restless free-diving housewife--as it captures "that itchy, panicky feeling you get when you suspect you've stepped into the slowest line at the supermarket." Its characters persist in lives pockmarked with awkwardness, continually in search of "another parallel version" of themselves. Amid their domestic mayhem, Gianopoulos finds humor and warmth, an animal curled up around a protagonist's ankle "like a misplaced comma." How to Get into Our House and Where We Keep the Money is a witty, telling, urbane exploration of the clumsiness of relationships, of the small wars and gigantic missteps that shape our lives with our nearest and not-always-so-dearest.
Please join us on the first friday of each month at 7PM for community night at Longfellow Books. We have become disturbed by the policies being enacted by the new administration, and feel strongly that, if nothing else, we need to provide a space for all in our community to come together and work to reverse some of these trends. Read on for more details, and we look forward to seeing you Friday night.
To that end, we will be keeping the store open every First Friday from 7- 9 PM, for community use. We will supply postcards and stamps free of charge for anyone wishing to reach out to our elected officials either at the federal or local level. We will have tables and chairs out for people to meet and share ideas, organize, etc.
If you represent a group that would like to have a representative present to speak or distribute materials, please contact us.
One important note--we’re happy to have all political viewpoints join in this very important conversation. Debate and disagreement are the hallmarks of our society. But so are respect and decency, inclusion and love. We will not tolerate messages or actions of hatred and discrimination in our store, in our community, or in our country.
