Tuesday, October 23rd, 7 p.m. – Ron Lavalette
Join us in welcoming local poet Ron Lavalette for a reading from his first published collection, Fallen Away. Ron is a longtime participant in our Poetry Open Mic nights, and we are thrilled to host him for his first solo reading at the Galaxy.Fellow poet Colleen Redman says of this book, ” Ron. Lavalette writes with honesty and humor through some Hunter Thompson-esque scenes with moons, whether buttery in August or shivering in a snowy Vermont winter.”
Thursday, November 1st, 8:30 a.m. – Breakfast Book Club
The Breakfast Book Club is moving to The Galaxy Bookshop this month (but we encourage you to stop at the diner and pick up coffee and a muffin, or breakfast to go, on your way to the store!) We are reading Lucky Boy
, by Shanthi Sekaran. In this timely novel, a wrenching emotional battle ensues between Soli, an undocumented Mexican single mother, and Kavya, an Indian-American chef who cannot have children, when Soli’s infant son is placed in Kavya’s care during an immigration detention.
The Breakfast Book Club meets the first Thursday of every month, and new members are always welcome!
