Coming Up at Longfellow Books...!


The Beer Bible
by Jeff Alworth
Thursday, October 8th at 7 pm
at Longfellow Books

An expert from the heart of the craft beer movement, Jeff Alworth has compiled a comprehensive guide to the history, manufacture, and consumption of this ubiquitous beverage. The Beer Bible is your go-to resource for everything from taste profiles and food pairings to geographical and historical oddities. Join us Thursday night as Jeff helps transform us from mere consumers to worldly connoisseurs.

"Alworth sets out to create a comprehensive guide similar to Karen MacNeil's The Wine Bible. Both books are meant to be read in pieces and are intended for anyone from novice to connoisseur. ....Beer enthusiasts will welcome this guide that feels like one is spending time with a well-versed drinking pal."

Yellow Horses: Poems
by Martin Steingesser
Thursday, October 15th at 7 pm
*at Longfellow Books*

Former Portland Poet Laureate Martin Steingesser will be at the store to read from his latest collection of poetry, Yellow Horses. Martin's poetry gives voice to the unspoken, and explores our humanity with grace and reverence. If you have not had the pleasure of seeing Martin perform, you won't want to miss it. To hear him tell it, "There are moments in poems I have made -- when they are given, when windows, doors, walls are blown off, and I am in a warm, boundless space with whoever is listening."
