THE BOOKSTORE BULLETIN
Pin Parties are a chance to join us in our newest pastime: pin making.
Most of the pins we make at the store are made from upcycled books, which means books that have reached the end of their lifespan as readable books that we collect to make pins or other crafts.
Our particular favorite to use for pins is old beaten up dictionaries from which we make word pins, either with words by themselves or words positioned over pictures from other books.
We had so much fun making pins ourselves that we decided we should share it with our customers. So we started holding pin parties, an event just for making pins!
The cost is $5.00 for one small, one medium, and one large pin. Upcycled books are provided but personal drawings and photos can be used as well.

Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor
The story of Onye, an outcast among outcasts, who discovers her own great strength and sets out to prevent the killing of her people. This book pulls no punches and covers a range of contemporary issues through the lens of a post-apocalyptic Africa. Rich world-building and complex characters are only the beginning to this thought-provoking read.
