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.

Coming Up at Longfellow Books...!
Join us Thursday evening, July 13th, at 7pm to hear Sarah Moriarty read from her new novel, North Haven!!
Sarah Moriarty’s stunning debut is a portrait of the family scars and faults passed along the generations, brilliantly capturing life on the Maine coastline, where time seems to stand still even as the waters never stop moving.
On an island in Maine, four siblings arrive at their sprawling, old summer place for the Fourth of July. It’s the Willoughbys’ first summer without their parents, and their beloved house is falling apart. When a substantial offer is made on the estate, the two brothers and two sisters are forced to confront issues they had hoped to keep hidden.
An homage to the layers and limits of the family bond, North Haven explores the shifting allegiances between siblings as they contend with their inheritance, the truth of family lore, and even the veracity of their own memories. This lyrical and moving novel delves into the secret world that exists between parents, one their children don’t fully understand, much as they may think they do.
