It's hard for us to believe, but as of October The Book Catapult has been open as a fully functional, brick-and-mortar independent bookstore for a full year! And thanks to you, we are going strong and thriving in the neighborhood like we never imagined. So we're throwing a party, naturally!
Please join us at the Catapult on Saturday, October 13th for an all-day celebration!
At 11:00am we will welcome acclaimed local children's book illustrator Susie Ghahremani! Susie will be reading and signing copies of her new book, Balance the Birds. Many of you may know her from her awesome kids book, Stack the Cats (a Catapult favorite) as well as her super-cool animal-themed enamel pins that we have at our counter. (Narwhals, cats in boxes, sloths reading books, etc.) If you have a small person in your life, you will definitely want to come meet Susie and have a book or two signed. Signed books make AMAZING gifts!
At 3:00, the adult party kicks into gear with Cocktails with the Catapult! We're upgrading our regular Sunday Coffee with the Catapult event this month to a Saturday cocktail party. Vanessa and Seth will be discussing some of the hot new books out there right now, as well as some of our favorite titles from this first year of The Book Catapult. As usual, all books discussed during Cocktails will be 20% off on the day-of.
And then there's cake. Following cocktails, we'll cut some birthday cake!
We will also have swell, free book giveaways all throughout the day.
Do join us if you can. We, quite literally, would not be here if not for all of you!
