September 22nd features a great off-site author event with Naseem Rakha, author of The Crying Tree. Details are here. We've also got memoirist Suzanne Morrison, author of Yoga Bitch, coming to the store on the 30th.

Even more importantly, it gives you one more way to talk to us, and to each other. The door is always open--let us know what you think.
