One Book Philadelphia: Sing, Unburied Sing,

29 Dec

Sing, Unburied, Sing is the 2019 One Book Philadelphia title. Ghost Boys and Last Stop on Market Street are the accompanying titles for younger readers. All are available for check-out at branch libraries or for purchase at Bindlestiff Books.

There will be several events between January 14 and March 13, with author Jesmyn Ward speaking at the main library Jan. 16 and at the Community College of Philadelphia Jan. 17. A schedule of events can be found here.

Open Christmas Eve day

13 Dec

Bindlestiff Books will be open Monday, Dec. 24, from 11 a.m. until 3:30 (or until the last customer leaves) for your last-minute shopping needs.

We will also have limited hours on Monday, Dec. 17 (call first: 215.662.5780), and our regular hours for the rest of the week. We will be accepting special orders through closing Wednesday, Dec. 19, which will be available for pick-up on Dec. 22 (or possibly earlier — this applies only to books in stock at our distributor’s Pennsylvania warehouse, something we will check on when we take the order). Orders placed after Wednesday are unlikely to arrive in time for Christmas.

We will be open intermittently between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
