Big Doings Weekend after Thanksgiving

After all the busyness and festivities of Thanksgiving, why not sleep in and make your way to Magic Tree on Friday, at a civilized time. Familiar faces of your neighbors, (often brilliant) recommendations, fabulous specials, and free gift wrapping all await you at Magic Tree.

Magic Tree joins indie bookstores across the country in bringing published authors in on Small Business Saturday to become trusted booksellers. Patricia J. Murphy, author of Journey of a Pioneer, Bugs and Us, and so many more, will be bubbling over with fabulous recommendations at 10 a.m. as will Larry Day and Miriam Busch, collaborators of the recently released picture book Lion Lion ("Sly, dark humor for little ones—at its best" Kirkus Reviews). William Hazelgrove, author of The Pitcher, Real Santa, and others will be on hand at 1 p.m. Also arriving by 1:30 is author Ami Polonsky. Ami's debut novel Gracefully Grayson has just been released to rave reviews. At 2 p.m., Kate Hannigan, author of Cupcake Cousins will enthusiastically recommend her favorites. We also welcome other authors to volunteer for this fun gig.

And don't forget--The Grinch is also coming to Magic Tree on Sat!

Adults Who Love to Read YA Literature

Once a month, adults who enjoy reading YA Lit get together to discuss a current title. In addition to a lively book chat, participants have had the opportunity to sit down with their book's author or Skype with an out-of-town author about their book. Anyone buying a bookclub title in order to join in the discussion receives a 10% discount. Next meeting is Jan. 8th at 7 p.m. There will be no bookclub in December. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson will be discussed in January.
