Be lined up at the door at 10am for the first chance at limited-edition, collectible merchandise such as a signed Captain Underpants print, a broadside from Stephen King's forthcoming book Finders Keepers, a Huck Finn literary map, salty and sweet literary tea towel sets, and more! (Special merchandise will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and will not be sold online.) We will be serving Krispy Kreme donuts to the first 3 dozen folks through the door.

Bring the family at 1pm for our Book Scouts event aimed at kids ages 8-12. We will be serving birthday cake and perhaps some Puerto Rican-themed refreshments inspired by our featured book, Blackbird Fly by Erin Entrada Kelly.

From 4-6pm, celebrate the launch of the magnificent essay collection, The World Is on Fire: Scrap, Treasure and Songs of Apocalypse (paperback, $16.00) by the Upstate's own Joni Tevis. Adult refreshments will be served.

Bring your family, your bookclub, or anyone who likes a good party!

February New Releases
Board Books
Redbird: Colors, Colors, Everywhere!Redbird: Friends Come in Different Sizes
Barney Saltzberg is launching a new series of board books about a character named Redbird. With his long orange beak, red body, and friendly expression, Redbird calls to mind Dr. Seuss's offbeat heroes and Boynton's zany barnyard creatures, while embodying the author's signature playful style. In Colors, Colors, Everywhere!, Redbird tries to pick his favorite color -- is it red like him, blue like the sky, or yellow like the sun? In Friends Come in Different Sizes, he introduces readers to all his delightful friends -- some who are tall and some who are taller, and some who are small and some who are smaller.

Workman Publishing Company - Release Date: 2/10/15 - Format: Board Book - Price: $5.95 each

Picture Books
A sassy, delicious picture-book gem from award-winning author Sarah Weeks and Caldecott Medal winner David Small. Glamourpuss has it all. She has style. She has charm. And she knows how to strike a pose. Glamourpuss loves being the center of attention. So when an unwelcome guest (a dog, no less!) steals the spotlight with some tasteless bow-wowing and undignified tail-wagging, Glamourpuss worries that she's going to fall out of fashion. Is there room for only one superstar in this mansion? When Glamourpuss makes her most majestic move to find out, the result is pure purrfection.
