National Writers' Series Presents: Scott Turow Online

Tuesday, May 12th, 2020

"An Evening with Scott Turow will now be a virtual event on Wednesday, May 20, at 7pm via zoom. Guest host is Patrick Livingston, news director at 7&7 UpNorth Live.

His new book, coming out May 12, is The Last Trial and is about an 85-year-old defense attorney who decides to defend one last client—a longtime friend accused of murder. What could possibly go wrong?"

Monday, April 21st, 2020

Saturday, April 25th, was scheduled to be Independent Bookstore Day.  We had big plans for all kinds of in-store events, but obviously, we've had to get a bit creative.  Some of those special events will move to the new Independent Bookstore Day in August (mark your calendars for August 29th!).  But since we could all use a bit of a pick-me-up these days, we're moving some of those special events online so we can share them all with you!  Check back each day this week for something new and fun, plus plenty of awesome offerings happening all week long, or sign up for our emails to get the latest updates!
