Happy Monday Booknerds! We are all feeling pretty good #ThisWeekAtAndersons because school is IN, which means we have more time to READ! Join us this week at our author event with Steve Cavanagh, who's book "Thirteen" will absolutely blow the minds of even the most well read crime-fiction lovers we know, or see us for storytime, a book group, or a chance to get some great discounts! Our popular Open Discussion Project took the summer off but meets again tonight and all voices are welcome - hope to see you there! #opendiscussionproject #welovepublicdiscourse @sscav #storytime #betweenthepages #bookgroup #sidewalksale #lagrange #shoplocal
Our goal #ThisWeekAtAndersons is to make you break out in goosebumps at least once! Check out the newest thriller from customer favorite Bob Crais, Rhys Bowen joins us with another in her Royal Spyness mystery series, T. Greenwood tells a heartbreaking story of a woman fighting to protect her special needs child, and true crime reporter Billy Jensen will share some real-life tales that are guaranteed to keep us up at night...I guess we'll have to read a spine-tingling board book at storytime just to fit in! Our full events calendar is available, as always, over on our website!
Now THAT is quite an amazing crowd! And full of big hearts committed to saving small felines at that 😻 What an absolutely fantastic event with Hannah Shaw @kittenxlady tonight! Thanks to @thecatcade for being here as well!
Our Questers have completed amazing Tasks this summer, using the stories they've read to create really impressive artwork and book recommendations! Stop by the bookshops to see their Tasks in person. And if you know any young readers who'd like to participate in our summer reading program, there's still time! StoryQuest runs through August 31st. (Special shout out to Brooke, Ibrahim, and Colin and some of their favorite authors) #StoryQuest #AndersonsBookshop #IndependentBookstore #ShopLocal

This is your official reminder that TODAY is your last day to find Waldo and turn in your game boards at all three of our locations! Our annual Find Waldo Local was a huge success and we are sorry it has to end! Naperville and La Grange will hold their wrap-up parties/prize drawings on Friday at 11am. Downers Grove will hold their party/drawing on Saturday at 11am. You do not have to be present to win a prize, as long as you filled out a raffle ticket when you turned in your game board. Thank you to the RECORD number of Waldo participants we had this year! #findwaldolocal #findwaldo #independentbookstore #independantbusiness #shoplocal #whereswaldo #naperville #downersgrove #lagrange

Time for another #AndersonsBookRec where twice a month we bring you a book recommendation from our very knowledgeable staff! This recommendation comes to us from Naperville bookseller, and customer FAVORITE, Carol! She's known for having a nose for the best book club books and she tells us she has never met a character more sinister, unlikable, and fascinating than in "A Ladder to the Sky"! We hope you all enjoy it as much as she did!
