Having also owned Downtown Books in Apalachicola Florida for 7 years as well as Betsy's Sunflower kitchen ,garden and gourmet, I have enjoyed collecting a selection of books to offer here in Betsy's Sunflower Maine. I am still working on it, but at present we have a surprising selection of natural history, garden, cooking, travel, children's, fiction, non fiction and poetry ( local authors favored)....
We always bring in a varied and interesting selection of "summer reads" for boat or beach...something for everyone!
We have, of course, E.B. Whites children's classics as well as "One Man's Meat" from Tillbury Press.
McCloskey titles including the classics like Blueberries for Sal etc.
Lots of guides to the area, from Cruising to Kayaking to Hiking to Birdwatching and more.
Local cookbooks galore.
On a lighter note we also have crosswords,, Hoyles Book of Rules...and jigsaw puzzles to set up on the card table for rainy afternoons. Playing cards too!
So much more...and always changing..so stop by and tell us what you would like to find.....we are always open to suggestions.
We host several fun book signing parties each year and several already scheduled for this coming spring and summer...stay tuned for details. You won't want to miss these exciting local author events!
So many authors make their home in Brooklin and the surrounding area, it would be impossible to list them all!
This summer 2016 we look forward to Peter Behren's newest book CARRY ME, with a book signing on July 22.
Kim Ridley and Rebekah Raye will be with us on June 26 with their award winning THE SECRET BAY,
and with luck Roger Angell will join us to sign his recently released collection of essays, stories and thoughts!
Still more to be scheduled, so stay tuned.
