Description

http://www.bookbugkalamazoo.com  Timeline Photosas featured in this month's #indiesnext list, our very own Sarah Nemire's great review of BARBARA THE SLUT and OTHER PEOPLE:  "Holmes' stories are powerful, sweet, ternderhearted, and honest depictions of contemporary experience. She navigates the thresholds of relationships, sex, and life-changing choices with poignancy and authenticity, bringing lovably imperfect characters to life through their struggles to negotiate the demands of culture as they strive to balance personal decisions and desires. A bold and beautiful debut."It's no secret that I can be counted among strong fans of Jonathan Franzen's work and that I've savored this new novel--both the sprawling, layered earnestness of its story and its frequent intimate moments of keen modern confusion and truth.
But it is the book's guiding force--its fantastic grappling of Secrecy and Transparency as both (in equal parts) beautiful and essential to the value of (all) narrative that will linger with me forever. - Joanna
Signed copies of PURITY here today.Kalamazoo is the first stop on the One and ONLY K. A. Applegate's tour! (as seen on web site below).
Excited to meet her with us on 9/22? Tickets are free with purchase of CRENSHAW at Bookbug. Please stop in or call us at 385-2847 soon.
We're proud that this event will also celebrate Katherine's nationwide food drive, and we'll be collecting nonperishable food donations for Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes throughout September in support of her remarkable #crenshawfooddrive campaign.Kids' lit (and Michigan) educator rock stars Colby Sharp and Travis Jonker have spun a brilliant thread connecting young readers to favorite authors.

Because every classroom, car ride, bedroom can't get a visit from a big name author.
WAIT. WAIT. YES THEY CAN.
This is podcast perfection--recorded and edited to be only (and precisely) what readers of kids' books dream to hear.
Keep spinning this YARN forever please, Colby and Travis!You are standing in a room filled with books, faced with a difficult decision. A distinct cover catches your eye. It is a groundbreaking anthology of short stories from award-winning writers and game-industry Titans who have embarked on a quest to explore what happens when video games and science fiction collide.
You know someone who needs this book.One of Bookbug's most resolutely loved (by both staff and customers) novels: ROOM, by Emma Donoghue, is being made into a film; and in this humble piece, Donoghue gives such an intriguing peek into the pleasure and virtue of watching one's own story fly off into the hands of the masters of an entirely different (and wondrous) story-telling universe.new from the Pulitzer Prize winning author of THE ORPHAN MASTER'S SON, we're looking forward to reading this collection of six stories--from an incredible writer--that "delve deep into love and loss, natural disaster, the influence of technology and how the political shapes the personal."Photos from Bookbug's postwe had our favorite night of the year last night with Read and Write Kalamazoo. Thank you, young authors, for sharing your incredible work with us and proving that #Kalamazoo #writes with breathtaking Promise.as spectacular as it gets: THE WONDER GARDEN in which one wanders through five magnificently diverse ecosystems and encounters 80 unique animal inhabitants.

The carnival has come to town and it is not what it seems. Two young friends will be tested as they are drawn into the sinister world of Cooger and Dark's pandemonium shadow show...it's very creepy, but also a meaningful reflection on appreciating the things you have. -Beverly #bookbugrecommends #spookyread #somethingwickedthiswaycomes
