A Busy Month at The BookMark - Enjoy Readings on 11/30, 12/3 & 12/5

Step into the holiday season with the gift of guest author readings at The BookMark! Join them as they host the following upcoming events:


Children's author Eileen R. Meyer will appear at The BookMark on Saturday, November 30th at 9am, and present her new book, The Superlative A. Lincoln: Poems About Our 16th President  as part of the Small Business Saturday festivities. Her other works include Sweet Dreams, Wild Animals!  A Story of Sleep and Who's Faster? Animals on the Move.

In The Superlative A. Lincoln, the author introduces us to the personal side of Honest Abe (his LEAST FAVORITE nickname) through fresh and funny poems expressing his superlative nature.  Abraham Lincoln is famous for many extremes: he was the TALLEST president, who gave the GREATEST SPEECH and had the STRONGEST conviction. But did you know that he was also the MOST DISTRACTED farmer, the BEST wrestler, and the CRAFTIEST storyteller?  Nineteen poems share fascinating stories about events in Lincoln's life, while history notes go even deeper into how he excelled.

"… An excellent use of language and recognizable rhyme schemes make this title a wonderful teaching tool for the classroom. These well-researched poems hold readers' attention and could encourage them to explore additional questions. –VERDICT:  A good example of how poetry can also inform…" (School Library Journal)

Also on Saturday, November 30th, The BookMark  will celebrate SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY and invite everyone to stop by and enjoy the festivities!  There will be food, fun, give-aways, and as always, LOTS of lively conversation!  Let us show our appreciation to our wonderful and supportive customers!

So join us at The BookMark on Saturday, November 30th at 9am, and meet children's author Eileen R. Meyer and from 9am–5pm to celebrate SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY! 

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Berg will appear at The BookMark on Tuesday, December 3rd at 7:00 PM, to present  her new book, The Confession Club.  She is the author of many bestselling novels, including The Story of Arthur Truluv, Night of Miracles, Open House (an Oprah's Book Club selection), Talk Before Sleep, and The Year of Pleasures, as well as the short story collection The Day I Ate Whatever I WantedDurable Goods and Joy School were selected as ALA Best Books of the Year. 

With over 4 million copies of her novels in print, Elizabeth Berg has proven to be a gifted storyteller, most recently captivating audiences with stories of love and friendship in the fictional town of Mason, Missouri.  The Confession Club invites readers on the most entertaining trip to Mason yet, as a group of friends gets more than they bargained for when they decide to start a monthly supper club. 

It began as a plan for congenial evenings—talking, laughing, and sharing recipes, homemade food, and wine.  Then one night, the mood abruptly changes course after one woman reveals something startlingly intimate. The supper club then becomes Confession Club, where the women gather weekly to share not only dinners, but embarrassing misdeeds, deep insecurities, and long-held regrets.  Iris Winters and Maddy Harris are invited to join, and for both women, the timing couldn't be better. The club offers exactly the kind of support they need to help them make some difficult decisions.

With The Confession Club, Berg delivers a charming and inspiring story about the power of female friendship and the lengths a few secrets can go towards bringing one another closer together.  As in The Story of Arthur Truluv and Night of Miracles, readers will find community and kindness on full display in Mason, Missouri.

"Berg is a natural storyteller, and creates a genuine group of women, old friends and new, for readers to cozy up to.  Even minor characters come to life with sincerity and charm. The Confession Club shows that family doesn't have to be defined in the traditional sense, home isn't where we expect it to be, and the love of friends is all we really need."  (Booklist)

Join us Tuesday, December 3rd, at 7:00 PM, at The BookMark—220 First Street in Neptune Beach, and meet author Elizabeth Berg!

Bestselling author Jeff Lindsay  will appear at The BookMark on Thursday, December 5th at 7:00 PM.  He is the author of the wildly popular eight-book Dexter series.  The first book in the series, Darkly Dreaming Dexter became the basis for the hit Showtime  and CBS television series Dexter.  The show was critically acclaimed, award winning (Emmy, Peabody, and Golden Globe Awards), and aired for eight seasons.  He will be presenting his new thriller, Just Watch Me, which is the first in a new series.

In Just Watch Me, Jeff Lindsay delivers a new, mesmerizing bad guy readers can root for:  Riley Wolfe. A master thief, Wolfe is an expert at disguise and targets the wealthiest 0.1 percent.  First target: he will try to steal the Crown Jewels of Iran. Leant to the U.S. for diplomatic relations, the jewels are worth billions of dollars.  The collection is guarded by space-age electronics and two teams of heavily armed mercenaries. No one could even think of getting past the airtight security and hope to get away alive, let alone with even a single diamond from the Imperial Collection.  Riley's draw to the jewels isn't the potential payoff but rather that it can't be done. His answer to any challenge is "just watch me," and his heists are a stroke of genius. Just Watch Me is thrilling and promises to be a whole lot of fun.

"Another blockbuster from a can't-miss master.  Enjoy the ride." (David Baldacci, author of One Good Deed)

"With master thief Riley Wolfe, Jeff Lindsay gives us an anti-hero for our times, as morally-ambiguous and hard to resist as his serial killer Dexter." (Sarah Dunn, author of The Arrangement)

Join us Thursday, December 5th at 7:00 PM, at The BookMark—220 First Street in Neptune Beach and meet author Jeff Lindsay!

The BookMark is located at 220 First Street in Neptune Beach.
