Gnu's Rooom Events

Here's the latest from the Gnu's Room, our local used and rare book store:

The Gnu's Room now has new t-shirts available! The folks who have
already been by to get one really love the "gnu" design. Thanks to our
friends at Mammoth Printing for the great job making them. Get yours
today for only $8.50 plus tax! Available sizes: S-M-L-XL-2X-3X.

Mama Mocha's Coffee Roastery Coffee Cuppings

Don't forget, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Sarah Barnett of
Mama Mocha's Coffee Roastery offers complimentary coffee cuppings at
5:30 p.m. If you participate, we promise you will leave with a wealth
of new knowledge about coffee and a 25% discount on a pound of one of
the three delicious coffees being cupped that day!

Saturday, March 27th, 6:30 p.m. - "The Southern Wing and a Prayer Tour"

Authors River Jordan and Shellie Rushing Tomlinson were challenged by
a mutual fan to join forces and take their respective radio selves on
the road to interview book sellers, book clubs, readers and yes – even
each other - as they create shows focused on great storytelling. The
challenge has been accepted and The Southern Wing and A Prayer Tour
took flight on March 18th and ends on April 1. They are making one of
their stops at the Gnu's Room. Book lovers will not want to miss out
on the storytelling fun run as River and Shellie charge across the
south reading from "Saints In Limbo" (River Jordan) and "Suck Your
Stomach In and Put Some Color On," (Shellie Rushing Tomlinson)
interview each other with surprise questions and comments at every
stop, talk to book clubs about their favorite new reads, and query
those great unsung heroes – the booksellers themselves about just how
they found themselves supporting thousands of writers and millions of
written words every year, all of which will be featured in upcoming
radio programs. Check out their blog:
southernwingandaprayer.blogspot.com and each of their individual
websites: www.riverjordan.us and www.allthingssouthern.com.

Tuesday, March 30th, 2:00 p.m. - The Write Time

An hour of inspiration, sharing and information for writers at all
levels of expertise, facilitated by Helen Silverstein.

Friday, April 2nd, 7:00 p.m. - Expressions Cafe

Poets, storytellers, musicians, spoken word artists, writers, and
actors are invited to perform their work on the first Friday evening
of each month for an appreciative and enthusiastic audience. Everyone
is welcome!
