This Week at East City Bookshop

Upcoming Special Events:

Every week, we offer two free storytimes:
Tuesday Storytime at 11:00am
Sunday Storytime at 11:30am

Wednesday, August 23rd @ 6:30pm: Join us for the launch of a new book of poetry, Crumb-Sized: Poems, by Washington, D.C. author Marlena Chertock. With frank humor, Chertock takes on varied and critical aspects of identity--femininity, gender, sexuality--as they relate (or don't relate) to her disability, somehow succeeding in making them familiar and universal. For more information click here.

Tuesday, August 29 @ 6:30pm: Love mysteries?  Four of the area's most notable local mystery authors gather to showcase their latest releases and to discuss the art of mystery book writing!  The panel includes Donna Andrews, Maya Corrigan, Sherry Harris,  and Colleen Shogan.
