Pirates & Pearls Party
Friday, September 17th 6:30pm – 9:30pm
@ Duffy’s Beer Garden & Parrish Parking Lot

We’re celebrating our “Pearl” Anniversary just two days shy of International Talk Like a Pirate Day…
so we’re throwing a mash-up PARTY!

Duffy’s Bar will be expanding their beer garden into the whole of our parking lot behind our shop.
The Bottle Tops will play – and have promised to do at least one Sea Shanty.
We’ll be giving away Strings of Faux Pearls, Pirate Tattoos (temporary tats, of course), Glow Sticks
and we’ll have CAKE.

Join us that evening and purchase your drinks from Duffy’s, one of our local business neighbors.
We’ll dance, reminisce, clink our mugs together in toasts, and share the mirth of reaching the milestone of our 30th year in the book business.

This is an outdoor event. However, please mask up in between your bites of cake and swigs of beer!

Book Signing with Selected Authors from our Young Writers Contest
First Friday, October 1st 5:30pm – 7:00pm
Our Front Sidewalk

“A Novel Idea: Stories” contains the top two stories from each age category of our Youth Writing Contest.
In all, there are eight stories, written by these young authors:
Isabel Letts (10), Luxi Bullock (8), Emma Letts (12), Ada Mack (12), Jessica Tisdale (17), Elsa Meyer (14), Oliver Elliot (22), Paige Trevarrow (20)

During the height of the pandemic, we received a donation from The UNL Virtual Book Club, whose members live as far away as New York and Germany. We used those funds to host the contest and create this book. Each published author receives a cash award and two complimentary copies.

Copies of the book sell for $5 each. Proceeds will be donated to support Youth Programming at Lincoln City Libraries.
Come celebrate creativity! This event is scheduled to be outdoors, on our front sidewalk. We ask that everyone wear masks and keep good social distance. This collaboration is the magic of community. Join us!
