Overheard in the Store
Every weekday, Open Books hosts Creative Writing Field Trips from students across the city. After their trip, the kids get to come down into the store to pick out a free book.
Walking into the foyer:
Kid 1: This is swag!
Kid 2: Nah, this isn’t swag.
Walking into the store:
Kid 2: Okay, this is swag.
Get your Official Kids’ Book Club Card at the front desk in the Open Books store, then have it punched every time you visit this summer. On your 5th visit, redeem it for a FREE book …or wait to fill up 2 cards and get THREE free books!
No purchase necessary. One punch per day. Cards must be redeemed before 09/2/13 and have no cash value. Incomplete cards may not be redeemed. Complete cards may be redeemed for a used children’s or young adult book priced at $10 or less.
Ah, yes. The Cocktail Chart of Film & Literature from Pop Chart Lab, who have previously charted the varieties of coffee, the history of Apple, America’s bike lanes, the composition of classic cocktails, the wonders of serif fonts, Gotham’s villains, and the 64 guitars that defined rock history.
Serve with recipes form The Artists’ & Writers’ Cookbook.
I need to try everything on this chart, but particularly a Gin Rickey. Well, and a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
