Gnu's Room Events

Just got an email from the folks at the Gnu's Room.  If you aren't familiar with it, the Gnu's Room is a neat little book store located on Gay Street next to the Amsterdam Cafe.  It specializes in rare and out of print books, but also has some new releases and also promotes local writers and artist.

Here are the events coming up at the Gnu's Room:

Saturday, January 9th, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. - Chair Massage

Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere at the Gnu's Room with a cup of your
favorite coffee or tea and let Conar Rochford remove any remaining
stress with his healing hands. A fifteen-minute session is only
$10.00. Gift certificates are available.

Friday, January 15th, 7:00 p.m. - Launch Party for "Gnu Writers' Series"

The Gnu's Room is launching the "Gnu Writers' Series," a literary
magazine which will feature a local poet, fiction writer or artist
each month. The inaugural edition features local short story writer
Jacob Thompson. Thompson is a regular participant at our open mic
nights and his story, "Guide to Biking Rural Roads at Night," is a
tongue-in-cheek look at the dangers of cycling in Lee County. Thompson
will be at the store on Friday, January 15th at 7:00 p.m. to read his
work and copies will be available for distribution. Light refreshments
will be served, and everyone is invited to help us celebrate this new
