No Tricks - All Treats in October


SAVE THE DATE - Author Leif Enger in Person at Rialto Cinemas Elmwood, Saturday, October 27 - 11:00am!

We're delighted to host Leif Enger (Peace Like a River) in celebration of the publication of his wonderful new novel, Virgil Wander, much of which takes place in and around a beloved old movie theater not unlike our own here in the Elmwood. There will also be a special screening of the classic Italian film Cinema Paradiso (click here for trailer) in connection with the reading and signing. Several of our staff members have already deemed Virgil Wander one of their favorite books of the year, and we expect a big crowd for this special occasion. Here's what one of our booksellers had to say: "Residents of a small, down-on-its-luck Midwestern town rally together to change their lot with the help of the local movie  house — rundown but still with some magic left in its walls. Enger is a kinder, gentler Richard Russo, with a quiet flair for making readers care about his characters." You can also read more about Virgil Wander here.

Buy your tickets, with or without book, through Eventbrite: or in the store. We will have additional copies of Virgil Wander and Peace Like a River for sale at the event. 






Come by to see all our new merchandise, including gifts for the home, art works, gardening accessories, and much more .


We have more than 100 calendars to choose from in a variety of sizes, shapes, and themes. Come by soon for the best selection — here are a few new arrivals.
