Of all the bookstores in all the towns in all the world, Bob Sylva is only going to walk into Beers to do a reading.
Thanks to all our valued customers who voted for us for SN&R's annual "Best of Sacramento" issue! You are the sunshine of our love....
Next week is Banned Books Week. One might think that in 2017, books aren't banned, but one would be wrong. There's a reason that the First Amendment is number one on the list - it guarantees our inherent right to read!
You probably remember Bob Sylva for his popular human interest column in the Sacramento Bee. He has a newly-published book of short stories. Not only is he a native Sacramentan, but the book has been designed and printed here in town. The artwork on the cover features a painting by local artist Terry Miura. And here's the thing: If you want to walk into an honest-to-goodness, brick-and-mortar bookstore and purchase a copy, you must come to Beers. So what are you waiting for?
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. So, we're stayin' home.
We know you think Beers Books is the cream of the crop, so make your voice heard! Vote for us in the "Best Place to Stock Your Bookshelves" category at www.bestofsac.com! Voting ends Monday, August 28!
Also, don't talk with your mouth full, don't pick at it, no swimming for an hour after eating, life isn't fair...
George Orwell saw many things - Big Brother, Thought Police, doublespeak, et al.... but he didn't see the Bay City Rollers or our Second Saturday Sale.
