I had a wonderful time visiting Robin and Forever Books in St. Joseph, MI. Such beautiful store. You feel like you are on vacation walking up and down the aisles of books. One of the many highlights was bookstore puppy, Poppy! My duties as your Executive Director of GLIBA include taking your cute animals for walks when the store gets busy. - Larry

Had a wonderful time at the pre-publication party for Nina Barrett's absolutely stunning book The Leopold and Loeb Files. Party complete with prohibition era drinks, finger foods and a stunning view of the Chicago Sunset. If you haven't seen this book in person you need to. It is gorgeous.
More on the book: "In The Leopold and Loeb Files, author Nina Barrett returns to the primary sources--confessions, interrogation transcripts, psychological reports, and more--the kind of rare, pre-computer court documents that were usually destroyed as a matter of course. Until now, these documents have not been part of the murder's central narrative. This first-of-its-kind approach allows readers to view the case through a keyhole and look past all of the stories that have been spun in the last 90 years to focus on the heart of the crime."
