As you are probably aware, there was a huge fire in Valle Crucis last week. Much was destroyed and lost, including the life of one of the residents. This tragedy has left a few county residents homeless and without basic necessities. Foggy Pine Books, in partnership with Appalachian Cookie Company and the Victorian Inn of Blocking Rock, is collecting gift cards to donate to the effected families. You may drop off any card or cash donation, in any amount, to help those suffering right now. You may also click the GoFundMe link below and donate to those in need in this way. Please consider helping out, even if you only have a couple bucks to do so. These families have lost everything. Let's show them what it means to have the support of the Boone Community. Thanks everyone!
Hey there, Foggy Friends! We have a few fun updates for you but we won't take long, promise.
To start, our FIRST newsletter went out yesterday. We're very excited to offer this once-a-month service to those of you that just can't get enough of Foggy Pine Books. The newsletters will go out during the first week of every month and you will able to easily unsubscribe if you decide it's not for you. Each newsletter will include upcoming events, changes in the store, and special updates that newsletter recipients get FIRST. Special editions will include coupons! If you are interested in signing up, you can find the form to do so in the drop down menu of the "About" section. You can also just clickHERE.
Second, we are starting a book club for general adult fiction! Our first meeting will be in September. You can find more information in the new Book Club blog that's found under the "Events" section or you can click HERE. You can also join our book club discussions on Goodreads. We will use this forum to share videos, articles, and interviews pertinent to the current book club selection. Use the widget below to gain access! Don't forget to follow or friend the owner, Mary, on Goodreads too!
Finally, we would like to remind you about our Baby's Storytime this Saturday, August 13th at 6:30pm. We'll be reading a board book version of Jabberwocky by Jennifer Adams/Lewis Carroll. There will be singing, dancing, and just general silliness. Parents, this is a great way to make new parent friends, get out of the house, and find that perfect play date partner. Parking will be free downtown and we'll have coffee for the adults. We can't wait to share our time with you!
First Friday ArtCrawl
Tonight (8/5) from 7pm-9pm we'll be hosting our monthly First Friday event during ArtCrawl! Join us for FREE wine, snacks, a giveaway, and 10% off the entire store - including the new Harry Potter book!
The giveaway will include Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates and your choice of a Hogwarts House candle!
We just received a new shipment of BABY LIT books! Each book is a learning primer (colors, numbers, emotions, etc.) that's matched in theme and art to a classic novel. Stop by and get one for your baby (or they make a great baby shower gift).
We will also be hosting storytime again this month! Join us on Saturday, August 13 at 6pm for Baby Storytime. We'll read a fun board book, sing songs, and play with toys! Then, on Saturday, August 20 at 6pm, we'll have Toddler Storytime. We'll read a picture book, sing even more songs and even dance a little! Join us for some weekend fun while there's free parking on King St!
