The “New” Way to Publish Books - Thursday, Feb 2nd 6:00 p.m.
Mellen resident Ros Nelson will be on hand to explain what “print-on-demand” means and how it has changed the world of books. She will show samples of work she has designed and published for herself and others. Her business, Little Big Bay LLC, has worked with a number of area authors. Informal. Bring your questions! Refreshments and discussion.
New this year . . . “Staff Picks”. Each month I’ve asked Sue & Laura to join me in recommending books already on our shelves and to select new titles being released. Here are the staff title recommendations coming out in January: Jennie: Home Sweet Home by April Smith (Adult Fiction); Egg by Kevin Henkes (Children’s Book); and My Life, My Love, My Legacy by Coretta Scott King (Adult Non-Fiction). Sue: Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian (Adult Fiction); and Frostblood by Elly Blake (Young Adult Fiction). Laura: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund (Adult Fiction); and Hideout by Watt Key (Juvenile Fiction). These books are now on order and will be cataloged and ready to check out soon. Remember to let us know if you’re interested.
