"Tie My Shoes" was written with a pointer stick, one letter at a time, I did my best. Born with a twisted body from cerebral palsy I earned a Masters Degree from Siena Heights University in Adrian, Michigan with honors, married and I am a father and grandfather.

But in grade school, I remember a medical doctor and educators told my mother and me that, "The ninth grade will be Lonnie's last year of school."

Then at forty-two, I suffered a fractured neck from a fall off my crutches, I still succeeded and much, much more. Read about it in my book, "Tie My Shoes." Your book support would be appreciated, thank you.

•• The new edition of @wildsam’s Brooklyn guide is out today and our own @emmastraub wrote a very special piece for it.

GIVEAWAY! ⚔️🛡✨

Matt and Ben are at it again, and we've got the hook up!

This incredible true story set in 14th century France is about a woman fighting for her honor and her life in a time when s*xual violence was a death sentence. The Last Duel reads like a gripping thriller that explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth, and now, it's about to be a movie too!

See Matt Damon, Adam Driver, @JodieMComer and @BenAffleck in #TheLastDuel only in theaters October 15.

Up for grabs: 25 pairs of tickets to an early screening on Wednesday Oct 13 and one grand prize of (2) theater tickets, (1) copy of the book, and a $100 gift card to Books Are Magic thanks to @20thcenturystudios. To enter: comment on this post!

We'll be contacting winners by Tuesday Oct 12.

It’s no coincidence that the books most often challenged and banned from schools and libraries are books that we need most! Books that center racism, diversity, LGBTQ+ characters & issues, and history from marginalized groups. This week, support an author that is bringing critical stories and discourse to the public! Big shoutout to @riverheadbooks for donating a few of their often-challenged titles to our free library. See the link in our bio for all the books we’re featuring this year! #bannedbooksweek #readbannedbooks

Happy Friday! Its time for a Staff Pick Spotlight and this week we think you should check out The Kissing Bug by Daisy Hernandez 😚🐞🌿
••
“I love this memoir! We got SCIENCE, we got generational TRAUMA, and best of all EXPOSURE OF OUR WACK HEALTH CARE SYSTEM. Daisy Hernandez weaves together family memoir and investigative journalism to uncover a parasitic disease that ultimately killed her aunt. This is a riveting and nuanced investigation into racial politics and for-profit healthcare in the United States. It's fascinating, informative, and beautiful! You're going to love it!” from our bookseller Natalie!

This week’s #StaffPickSpotlight will KEEP you on your toes 🦶 Lindsay’s pick this month is ‘The Keep’ by Jennifer Egan! “I love how self aware and meta this novel is: there is a book within a book, gothic tropes being used to the point of absurdity, and a sense that a joke is being played on you as the reader. You're never quite sure which events are real or if you can trust the perspectives of the characters. And that ending! Superb!”

And attention all Jennifer Egan fans! Did you know she has a new book coming out? ‘The Candy House’ is out April 2022! 🍭

Head to our blog for all of our staff picks! Link in bio!

Tell me you love an author without actually telling me you love that author ✨ Shulokhana’s recommendation for September is ‘Dear Senthuran’ which makes it her third staff pick written by Akwaeke Emezi! “Dear Senthuran is a revelatory exploration of self, love, and identity.
