Spring News from the Red Canoe

Hi everyone,

We are closed SUNDAY, APRIL 12! But we do have our 2nd Saturday Poetry reading beginning at 4pm and we will re-open Monday at 6am.

It is the spring season and we are having a blast playing in the dirt. The garden is looking lovely already and the flowers will soon be poking their heads out! So stop in for a wonderful and relaxed breakfast or lunch in the garden, a cup of coffee or tea, a visit with that friend you keep meaning to call, or a simple and quiet moment of retreat. Browse from our small but great selection of new and discounted books, green books, and poetry.

The last couple weeks in April, and weekends during May, promise to be a literary feast. Leslie Miller’s new book Let Me Eat Cake is delightful and she will be here at 4pm on the 25th of April. If you can’t get into Red Canoe to buy your book, check out our on-line bookstore: click on internet sales on our home page

May 2nd brings Marsha Wight Wise with her new book Neighborhoods of Baltimore. Washington Post editor and author Steve Luxenberg on May 9 with his new book Annie’s Ghosts: A Journey into a Family Secret –a book which is getting rave reviews pre-publication. It is a good one!

Finally, for the children, we are carrying Milkshake CD’s -- an excellent traveling CD for travel over the holiday weekend or any weekend. No tears, just singing and dancing in your seat!

Stop in soon for some good fresh coffee and muffins, breakfast and/or lunch, good books and the best neighbors, here at Red Canoe.

See you soon,

Nicole and Peter
