Join us on May 2 for spontaneous poetry readings, samosas, a literary trivia contest with prizes, snickerdoodles, and a copy of our Declaration of Interdependence. We’ll be giving away a limited number of books for adults and kids, and Blaine Sprouse, one of the great fiddlers of our time, entertains from 1 to 4 p.m. That evening, at 7:00 pm, we’ll present Diana Beresford-Kroeger at a free reading and book signing. A writer steeped in Gaelic storytelling traditions, she’s also a botanist, a medical biochemist, and a self-described “renegade scientist” who explores the inter-relationship of spirit, story, and place.

H is for Hawk & for Helen
On April 15, a rapt crowd of 175 people heard Helen Macdonald discuss her award-winning book, H is For Hawk. The memoir describes how she coped with grief following the death of her beloved father by training a goshawk, whose “fierce and feral temperament mirrored her own.” You can purchase a signed copy at the store. And thanks to Bing Gong, you can listen to the presentation here. Pictured: Helen Macdonald at the (not Steve) Costa Award ceremony. Photo: www.theguardian.com
