Special Event — Ivy + Bean Creators In Person!

Celebrate the first new Ivy + Bean book in four years! Join author Annie Barrows and illustrator Sophie Blackwell, who will be appearing live on stage at the Rialto Cinemas Elmwood on Saturday, September 8, at 10:00am to launch the publication of Ivy + Bean One Big Happy Family. This is a ticketed event with open seating. You can buy a copy of Ivy + Bean One Big Happy Family in advance at Mrs. Dalloway’s (or online) beginning on Tuesday, August 28, which gets you a ticket that guarantees a seat. Or you can buy a ticket without a book from Eventbrite to also guarantee a seat (subject to availability). We'll also have copies of Ivy + Bean One Big Happy Family for sale at the event, along with all the previous books from the series. Tickets available through Eventbrite at this link: or at the store. This event is ideal for ages 6-9, but all are welcome.

By the way, if you'd like to see what some Ivy + Bean fans have to say about why they love the series, click here to watch this adorable short video.


As mid-summer rolls in to August, it's fun to think about all the great new titles heralding the fall season that are starting to arrive. We have been busy moving tables and displays around to offer you a more spacious environment in which to browse and be inspired. Our inviting children's area now has two full tables of books and other gifts on display, complementing our already extensive selection for the newest readers through young adults. Meanwhile, the adult non-fiction side of the room has more space to peruse our great offerings in History, Biography, Politics/Current Affairs, Science, Psychology, Philosophy, Parenting, and Travel Literature & Guidebooks. Come take a look — we hope you'll like it as much as we do. 

As always, we're here to talk books and help you find your next great read, as well as to discover gifts that you're not likely to see anywhere else for someone special in your life.

Our new display table in the Children's area features books and gifts.
