Booksmith BOOKSWAP: Flashback Edition!
July marks Bookswap's third birthday! Birthdays make us sentimental. We wish we could go back and re-experience the wonder of seeing Bookswap transform from a fledgling, wobbly-kneed event series to a cornerstone of our events program, and all the hilarious moments and people along the way.

But, we can't. So, instead, this Bookswap is all about time travel. Books, like anything you love in a particular space-time, tend to change their timbre. We challenge you to think back a decade or two and re-read something you loved then. Has it gone the way of Britney and Justin's denim catastrophe of 2001 (never forget!), or has it held up?  If not, what was happening in your life that made it seem like a good idea? If it has held up, why? What about the book makes it a Time Lord?

We'll talk in small groups, so you'll get to learn about other people's book histories, then we'll convene for a rowdy, white elephant swap. As always, we'll have food, drinks, swag, local authors, good conversation, and Bookswap Birthday surprises (Bookswap, this is your life!). Amy Stephenson, our sass-attack-in-chief, will host.

Special Guest Caroline Paul will join us to talk about her memoir Fighting Fire!

Tickets $25 in the store or at Brown Paper Tickets (online or 800-838-3006)
