Snagged a photo of Alan Freed today at a pre-shop. The verso is signed by Freed and somebody else. To me the first name sort of looks like Chuck. Any ideas?

Help with autograph

Happy Friday All, this is driving me crazy and I've had the best luck, asking and learning about books, in this forum than anywhere else.  So here goes: 

 

NEW ORLEANS by Bethany Ewald Bultman, Photographs by Richard Sexton, Compass American Guides, 1994

 

I bought this book years ago for my first trip to New Orleans.  Just for the heck of it, before tossing in my thrift store pile I looked it up on Abebooks.  Lots of copies there but they were all paperback versions.  I have looked everywhere and cannot find a hard cover verison anywhere.  So, does that mean the hard cover version is rare?  Just because it is rare does not, necessarily make it desirable? 

 

What are your thoughts?  Thank you for looking!

Bouquets for Books

 

I thought this was such a neat idea! Wouldn't it be great if the idea spread to flower shops in other communities. Libraries or FOLs could even approach flower shops and suggest they implement a "Bouquets for Books". The library could  put up signs about the program which would not only drive people to the florist to donate new children's books, but those people might in turn become loyal patrons of  a florist that is involved in the community.  Local bookstores and on line booksellers would see a spurt in children's book sales too! LOL And of course a news article is great PR for the florist! 

 

Royer's Flowers & Gifts' collects 1,452 books for public libraries


Royer's Flowers & Gifts' annual "Bouquets for Books" event collected 1,452 new children's books for public libraries in the six counties where the company operates.


The book drive, which ran Nov. 1-8, asked customers to donate new children's books in exchange for a free bouquet, up to three per family per visit.


The libraries that received books were:


Berks County Public Libraries, 241


Cumberland County Library System, 158


Dauphin County Library System, 130


Hershey Public Library, 125


Library System of Lancaster County, 309


York County Library System, 307


According to Royer's, in nine years, Bouquets for Books has collected almost 14,000 books for the libraries.

As most of the Bookseller "old-timers" know, Bumpy is the name of our squirrel mascot (who hasn't been around these parts as often as before, but who hopefully still frequents the Bookboard in search of more nuts to add to his stash).

 

This guy attached a piece of bread to an action camera to see the world through a squirrel's eyes:

A moment in Bumpy's world

Iraq War Vet Wins National Book Award For Fiction
Boston NPR Radio


Iraq War veteran Phil Klay has won the National Book Award for fiction. The judges described the short stories in Klay’s collection “Redeployment” as brutal, piercing and sometimes darkly funny.


Klay served as a U.S. Marine in Iraq’s Anbar province in 2007 and 2008. He came home and turned that experience into fictional stories, some about being in the combat theater, others about the struggle coming home.


In his emotional acceptance speech last night, Klay said “I came back home not knowing what to think.” When Dexter Filkins reviewed the book, he called it “the best thing written about what the war did to people’s souls.”
