Secret Garden Books, Thursday, April 17 at 6:30pm
You’re cordially invited to attend our every third Thursday of the month Book Club for grown-ups.

This month's book is Code name Verity by Elizabeth E. Wein.

Moderated by longtime bookseller Michelle and events gal Suzanne, our book club is multi-generational, friendly, casually well read, and one of the best groups to talk about a book with we've ever met!

There's no need to register or RSVP. Just show up and join the lively discussion. As always, our club books will be discounted 10% every month. Additionally, if your book club buys 3 or more copies of one title, we’ll happily discount any and all other book club’s titles too!

Get Ready for World Book Night Celebration
Eagle Harbor Book Company, Thursday, April 17 at 7pm
We are celebrating the gift of reading tonight as we welcome Bainbridge Island and Kitsap World Book Night givers! On Wednesday, April 23, these volunteers will go out into the community, bringing books to people -- young and old -- who may not be dedicated readers. A gift of a free book may ignite a spark! Our givers have included a stay-at-home dad, police officer, teachers, librarians, attornies, and more.

For the past three years, Eagle Harbor Books has been a designated station for World Book Night, and we've worked with givers to bring books to everyone from skateboarders to homebound senior citizens. We love hearing the creative way our givers, all passionate readers, have taken these books provided through World Book Night (publishers, bookstores, and the American Booksellers Association) and put them in the hands of reluctant readers or folks who are not often in libraries or bookstores.

If you are a giver, you can come and pick up your box tonight, and enjoy some hero worship! If you have not been involved in World Book Night, this is a chance to meet some of the movers and shakers -- and get information on how to sign up next year!

Jennifer K. Mann, Two Speckled Eggs
Secret Garden Books, Tuesday, April 22 at 7pm
Local illustrator Jennifer K. Mann has had a book published before, so this isn't, strictly speaking, a debut. (She illustrated our own George Shannon's Turkey Tot last year, see below).

But this is her first book she wrote herself, as well as illustrated, so we're counting this an especially festive big deal!

And it's such a sweet book! We knew the illustrations would be lovely, and they are quirky and wonderful. But the story is so good, too! It involves eggs that no chicken laid, sure, but it mostly seeks to include anyone who's ever felt excluded.

This is going to be a super-fun launch party. You should join us!

In the meantime, here's the author's website, Jen's Red Wagon.

Two Speckled Eggs, with Jennifer Mann
Eagle Harbor Book Company, Sunday, April 27 at 3pm
Great news! Bainbridge Island illustrator Jennifer K. Mann is also an author -- and we are helping to celebrate the launch of her first children's picture book! And it is an Indie Next kids pic this spring. Come join us! You might find some delicious malted bird's eggs!

A birthday party sets the scene in this sweet and relatable story for anyone who's ever been the odd girl out. It's Ginger's birthday, and she has to invite all the girls in her class to her party, including Lyla Browning. Lyla isn't like the other girls: she smells like old leaves, doesn't talk much, and once brought a tarantula to school for show-and-tell. On the day of the party, Lyla is much earlier than everyone else. But even after the others arrive, Ginger's party doesn't go quite the way she'd hoped: some of the girls change the rules to the games, and no one likes her silver and gold birthday cake -- except Lyla. By the time Lyla gives Ginger her present -- a tiny homemade nest with two delicious malted-milk eggs -- Ginger begins to wonder: is being different really such a bad thing?

"Two opposites may not be as opposite as they imagined in Mann's look at grade school cliques and oddballs....Readers may not look at their classmates the same again." Kirkus Reviews

_______________

Jennifer K. Mann was an architect before turning to children's books full time. Two Speckled Eggs is the first book that she has written and illustrated. She illustrated BI author George Shannon's Turkey Tot. Mann lives on an island near Seattle with her husband, children, cats, dogs, and chickens

Mary Jo Heller & Aarene Storms, Sex in the Library
Secret Garden Books, Tuesday, April 29 at 7pm
Sex in the Library is the ideal source for collection development of materials dealing with sex and sexuality for teens. Both public and school librarians will benefit from the guidance for establishing selection policies in this area and for sharing those policies with teachers, parents, administrators and teens.

The book provides no-holds-barred and no-body-parts-left-out reviews of more than 100 books to be considered for collections. The reviews include ratings on sexual content, language, and violence as well as recommended age level and the use of "alert" words - words that often spark controversy. Readers also will appreciate as the ideas for educating students and adults about the mission statements of school and public libraries.

Secrets Lost, with Marcia Breece
Eagle Harbor Book Company, Sunday, May 4 at 3pm
We are happy to welcome back Port Gamble author Marcia Breece to talk about her latest book, Secrets Lost: Secrets Remembered.

Secrets Lost is a story of discovery and awakening, set on a llama farm in rural Western Washington. Morgan Hill dons a pair of spectacles she finds hidden in an heirloom trunk and begins to catch a glimpse of lost generations and long forgotten family secrets. Her expansion and awakening flourish when she meets Yuri Bozek, a mysterious lumberjack who is more than his occupation implies. Drawing on his intuition and a deep energetic awareness, Yuri guides Morgan to discover the true essence of love. Their paths converge in the dark attic as the heirloom trunk exposes ancient bonds neither could have imagined.

Marcia Breece has traveled along a vast and eclectic spectrum of careers, from stay-at-home housewife to globetrotting corporate executive. Her most recent endeavor finds her working on her llama ranch in rural western Washington, where she can breathe deep and feel at home.
