Thirty More Days Of Madness | 03.31.20

It’s been just over two weeks since we opened our doors. Even though these two weeks weren’t quite what we expected, we absolutely love being in the West Loop! It’s been a pleasure to recommend titles for your quarantine book clubs and to see what everyone’s reading. The next time you hunker down with a book and a beverage, share it on social media and tag us, along with the hashtag #quarantini. (Share your recipes if your beverages are extra special!)

We’re trying to pretend everything is somewhat normal around here. We have one more week of the Virtual Toddler Jam via video—look for it on Facebook tomorrow morning at 10… or 10:15 if we have technical issues. Miss Dawn-Marie will host it live again beginning April 8.

And we’re continuing with our New and Not-So-New Release Tuesday. (In case you can’t tell from our mad photography skills, it’s just the two of us in the store taking turns with the camera.)

From Mary:

If you’re a foodie, this is your chance to go full circle with the woman who started it all… Alice Waters, and her daughter Fanny.

You might recall Fanny at Chez Panisse by Alice Waters, written about her 7-year-old daughter Fanny, originally published in 1997. Available at $19.99

Now it’s time to see the kitchen through Fanny’s lens.

Always Home: A Daughter's Recipes & Stories by Fanny Singer features a foreword by her mother, Alice Waters. Available at $35.00

Both are wonderful.

And from Javier:

Rag by Maryse Meijer

Reading Rag is like looking into a shattered mirror and trying to find who you are among the shards. The joy comes from reading all the way through to find your shard and hold onto it like grim death no matter how much it hurts.

Writers & Lovers by Lily King

Bookseller confession. This is my first Lily King. After reading Writers & Lovers I had that epiphanous moment when I realized this was where I wanted to be as a reader. Needless to say I am going to go back and read everything that Lily has ever written. We are slated to host her in the store on May 11th, so fingers crossed.

Do you think tomorrow they’ll just say, “April fools! Go back to work and school!”?

Thanks for reading.
Mary & Javier
