Birthdays and books in Littleton

I got my email newletter today from The Village Book Store in Littleton, N.H. The newsletter is not on their website yet, but they say it is coming soon. Meanwhile you can get it via email by signing up on the site. There were several interesting things in this latest issue including a review of The United States of Arugula which is now on my (ever-growing!) to-read list, a local best-sellers list which included several titles not reflected on the NY Times list, and announcements of upcoming events. Among those events were two birthday celebrations:

We will be holding special events downstairs at the Village Book Store
every Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Activities will be geared towards families with
children ages 4 and up, but everyone is welcome!

Sunday, January 21, 2007 , 2:00 p.m. Winnie the Pooh’s Bee-Day Celebration
Celebrate author A.A. Milne’s birthday with stories, crafts, and perhaps a little smackerel of something delicious!

Sunday, January 28, 2007 , 2:00 p.m. Adventures in Wonderland We’ll paint
the roses red, design a funny hat, and play a little croquet in honor of Alice
in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll’s birthday, and a very merry unbirthday for the rest of us!

I love the idea of celebrating author birthdays by going to a bookstore event!
