The Bookstore proudly welcomes Rose Welty as one of our permanent display artists. See her work at www.rosewelty.com 

 "EVERY STORY PAINTS A PICTURE, EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY"

Our evolution to becoming a store that has more to do with art continues. In addition to Rose Welty, Anne Elizabeth Howard and Kittie Deemer, we will soon add the art of Mary Margaret Steele and Diana Cook. We believe that as we become more involved in the display and selling of art we stay true to the "storystore" mission because "every story paints a picture and every picture tells a story."

And we will continue to have guest artists as well. Currently we are showing the art of Margaret Roth. See her work at www.margaretroth.com

    

New Partners to the Store

The Storytellers Bookstore is now sharing our space with Wake Forest's first "Digital Daily News" known as Wake Forest Today and with local publisher Paper Journey Press. We hope this will be more than a sharing of space and will be a sharing of spirit and creativity. Both Paper Journey Press and Wake Forest Today are owned and run by Wanda Mukherjee, and if you don't know about either of these resources, find them at www.thepaperjourneypress.com and www.wakeforesttoday.com

 

     

Book Publisher to talk

                                             Navigating the World of Publishing Your Work

   For authors who have that manuscript ready to go, or who are just wondering how to get started, we have a very informative presentation by Jon Batson of Midnight Whistler Publishers. Mark your calendar for the April Art After Hours evening, that would be the 11th of April. He will speak at 7PM and be around for discussion following his talk.

   Jon has given this talk previously in the store. It was well attended, well received and appreciated. Find him at www.MidnightWhistler.com

 

Shameless Commerce Section

    We know you love sales. Something is on sale everyday in the store. Might be fiction, might be cookbooks. Watch the board out front or call for information

 Book Reading/Signing

Mark your calendar now for a remarkable signing/reading on Saturday, May 31st 3-5 PM. Katherine Young will present her book, Transcending the Razor Wire: A True Story. It is the story of transformative love between a man in prison and the woman who helped him rediscover how to live productively and fully in the world.

 

            

Saturday ALL DAY Parents Read to Children

EVERY Saturday at 10:30am

We are changing the nature of our Saturday morning storytime. Our attendees have turned out to be very young children who actually need to be in a lap, most appropriately the lap of mom or dad. Although we occasionally will have guest readers and storytellers for any older children, we believe this will work best as a time for parents to come and read to or read with their children.

So each Saturday we will set aside some recommended readings for parents to explore with children and if you like what you see here's a deal, 20% off your first purchase and 10% off any other selection you buy from us.

We have a fine selection of books for all ages and we are getting ready to stock the shelves with new books. Come see what we have!
