March 2023 Newsletter
Oh, springtime! March comes in like a lamb! Join us in the wearing of the green for St. Patty's Day at A Novel Experience!
We are embracing the warmer days of March and celebrating the return of longer daylit afternoons! And, we're gathering up all the Irish good luck that we can! Check out Emily's collection of green books to go along with the shamrocks--and that includes a nod to many great titles to help you "green up" your awakening gardens (although the emerging weeds get the early bird award...). Join us this month for some great reading, book club discussions, and sharing stories of a rather topsy-turvy spring! We are looking forward to a season of great conversation, discoveries of really good books that will inspire us, and sunny days. And, we're holding over the photo show from February--we're so enjoying the wonderful gazes of sweet dogs and equines that have graced the store thanks to the contributions of photographers from near and far chosen by Ray Sullivan--thanks, Ray, it was so great to see you in Zebulon for the Dog and Pony Show--we can't wait till next year! In more news some of you might know we have an audiobook program, and for those of you that don't now you do! You can come in to the store to find out more or click HERE to start your membership! By using Libro.fm you're not only supporting a small business but you're also keeping money in the community, so we thank you for your support! Stop by, join one of our book groups, share your thoughts about contemporary topics at Living Room Conversations...and, visit with us on March 17th--we'll celebrate St Patrick's Day with libations and snacks to those wearin' the green!
