Katelyn Winters did a fantastic job of organizing Bloomsday in downtown Bloomsburg this last Saturday, June 16th! Events at The Cloak and Dragon included a reading by Danny Roth of BTE of ‘Araby’ by James Joyce. We also are hosting three art pieces created around the theme of ‘The Bluest Eye’, Toni Morrison’s first novel. Each piece was framed by Chamuris Custom Framing. All services were donated for the event. These pieces will be displayed and silent auction bids accepted through this Saturday, June 23rd. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to The River Poets. Take advantage of this great opportunity to acquire some lovely local artwork while supporting your local poets!
New in June – Ephemera Magnets! A staple of the funky coffeeshop/bookstore, we have a wide array to peruse. You’ll find the required coffee humor as well as topics from kids to culture and everything in between. Come take a look and don’t miss out on the burgeoning kids book section as well!
My Favorite Girl
by Licia Gregory
“Mother said a prayer for strength for Violet in her trials and all women struggling with the wrong men in their lives….”
Licia Gregory’s inspirational and poignant story tells the story of Mother, who stands through every hardship as the symbol of an independent, resilient African American woman.
