WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE STORE!

My favorite season is fall, with the trees looking like they're covered with Fruity Pebbles, but there's something  so exhilarating about spring.  It's delightful to come home when it's still light outside.  It's a mystery how you're supposed to dress because it's chilly in the morning and boiling by noon. And it's a wonder to see everything popping up out of the ground:  tulips! daffodils!  the bricks in my patio!

We are proud to announce that we are once again playing host to the Krause Elementary Fifth Graders End of the Year Treat.  We're going to have three classes come on Friday, June 1 for their shopping excursion.  I love it!  Fills me with energy to see how different each class is. 


Our June book club pick is Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver.  

Barbara Kingsolver's fifth novel is a hymn to wildness that celebrates the prodigal spirit of human nature, and of nature itself. It weaves together three stories of human love within a larger tapestry of lives amid the mountains and farms of southern Appalachia. Over the course of one humid summer, this novel's intriguing protagonists face disparate predicaments but find connections to one another and to the flora and fauna with which they necessarily share a place.

Barbara Kingsolver's books of fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction are widely translated and have won numerous literary awards. She is the founder of the PEN/Bellwether Prize, and in 2000 was awarded the National Humanities Medal, the country's highest honor for service through the arts. Prior to her writing career she studied and worked as a biologist. She lives with her husband on a farm in southern Appalachia.

Meet us at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20 for Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingstolver in the basement of the Armada Corners Building, at 23087 E Main St, Armada, MI 48005, enter on Burk St and take the first stairwell on the right.
