  • The Page Turners Have Spoken, And They Are Conflicted!

    There are many fantastic elements to my job as a bookseller at Little Shop of Stories, but hands down one of my favorite tasks is running my two book clubs. Kids & Companions is a group for kids ages 8-11, and a grownup reading partner of their choice, and the Page Turners are all girls […]

    Thanks to everyone who voted in the Being Friends With Boys Sad Jackal band logo contest!

  • Sad Jackal Goes To See The XX

I’ll be posting a recap from the members of Sad Jackal next week of course, but for now picture Charlotte busy with preparations. Including admiring her […]

  • Thanksgiving, Sad Jackal Style

    This year for Thanksgiving, my husband and I are staying home and having a just-the-two-of-us holiday. Because it’s a little strange not having a ton of friends and family around (but also kind of nice), we make sure to plan a lot of great things for the day, including special meals, though not necessarily traditional […]

  • Sad Jackal Sees Zammuto

    Monday night I was at The Earl, watching Zammuto, a band that was new to me . They were a fabulous combination of poppy rock, musical and cultural intellect, and hilarious videos that were synched to their performance. It was a truly enjoyable show (and I recommend you check out their extensive tour, as they […]
