Hi. Exciting News. On Friday, May 20th @ 6 pm, Briars & Brambles Books and the Main Street Community Center will host an author talk including a reading and book signing for Blue-Eyed Slave written by Marshall Highet and Bird Jones. Both authors and Briars & Brambles Books will donate 100% of book sales to the Main Street Community Center. There is no charge to attend the event but advance registration is recommended via the community center's website (mainstreetcenter.org). For more information, people should visit www.mainstreetcenter.org or briarsandbramblesbooks.com.
Books are available for sale at Briars & Brambles and will be available to purchase at the event.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to be in touch. It would be wonderful if you could publicize the event in advance.
This event is particularly special to me because Bird Jones was a professor and mentor of mine in college. It is not an understatement to say that neither the bookstore nor the community center would not exist if I hadn't met Bird.

Join us at the Greene County environmental "vortex" for a celebration of Earth Day/21 on September 25th! Held at the Rip Van Winkle Park/Pavilion in Tannersville/Hunter on the Mountaintop, this location is "sheltered" in the Catskill Forest Preserve, the Catskill Park, the protected Catskill Watershed segment, and the historic focus of the Hudson River School of Art. Many environmental groups, clubs and gov't shops will be present to discuss, display, share, and demonstrate the value of protection, preservation, and celebration of the place that we call home. Join us from 11 AM to 4 PM for hikes, bikes, games, discussions and workshops that focus on the environmental beauty that we all call home. Music performances, tours, and snacks will all be available.... AND ALL FREE!
