Welcome to our new "SPOTLIGHT" page where we bring to your attention books and gift items that we thought are pretty cool. More often than not, they will be some quirky, lesser known stuff. Hidden gems. We'll also tell you about any in-store events that might be coming up. Unless it's a larger event, in which case it'll most likely have a page of its own. Or its own separate wing or something. With its own zip code.
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC • MUNCHIES WELCOME
Coming up next:
The Ghost Writer
Pierce Brosnan, Ewan McGregor, Kim Cattrall
Based on the book "The Ghost" by:
The role of a ghostwriter is to make his client look good, not to uncover the truth. But what happens when the client is a major political figure, and the truth could change the course of history? Adam Lang, the controversial former prime minister of Britain, is writing his memoirs. But his first ghostwriter dies under shocking circumstances, and his replacement—whose experience lies in portraying aging rock stars and film idols—knows little about Lang’s inner circle. Flown to join Lang in a secure house on the remote shores of Martha’s Vineyard in the depths of winter, cut off from everyone and everything he knows, he comes to realize he should never have taken the job.
Have you met Ollie? The super adorable, irresistible hunk of love??
Ollie is a four-year-old Sheepadoodle (Old English Sheepdog and Poodle hybrid). He was certified in August 2015 through the Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dog Program after going through 18 months of training with his handler/owner Carol Kirby, and is now a working certified therapy dog with the Newtown Strong Therapy Dogs program.
B.A.R.K. is a free community service program open to children ages 6 to 12. It is a simple program where kids get to practice reading by doing so aloud to, yup, Ollie!
Reading to a calm and well trained pet can help boost the confidence and self esteem of reluctant readers: kids are less anxious, less self-conscious and more relaxed knowing that the "listener" is non-judgmental, patient and offers unconditional love.
Limited time slots are available. If you are interested in reserving one for your child, please contact the bookstore at 203-944-0400.
