VINTAGE BOOKS invites readers to

become BOOK ANGELS this Holiday



Ready to be a positive influence in our community? Vintage Books will share our Book Angel credit (new and/or used) and books, as we can, to help readers enjoy sharing with others this Holiday season.

To participate:
Please write a few sentences telling us what you would do if you were given the chance to be a Book Angel.  Perhaps you know of a program (club, church, school, community effort) that could use books right now?


We'll accept your HANDWRITTEN ideas Nov 15- Dec 5th.  Please write down your ideas and contact info (name, phone number or email.)  This project is open to readers 6 and up.

Book Angels credit must be used all in one visit.  One of our knowledgeable staff will gladly help with your shopping. Credit must be used by Dec. 31, 2016.

The credit is for sharing with others (making you an official Book Angel) and not for your personal use.


This program is free and all book credit is provided by Vintage Books and the customers that have donated to the cause.

With Christine Fletcher on Sunday, December 11th at 3pm

Join us for The Sunday Sessions on December 11th at 3pm for a mini workshop with Christine Fletcher on I Couldn't Put It Down! Using Conflict to Hook Your Readers.
"Conflict on every page” is common advice for fiction writers. Does this mean your characters must argue and fight constantly? Not at all. In this workshop, we’ll explore the many flavors of conflict, from the knife-edge tension of silence to the excitement of a full-on battle scene. We’ll discuss how conflict advances plot, reveals character, and raises the stakes, and how its skillful use will keep your readers turning pages well into the wee hours.
Come with questions, a passion for writing, & something to take notes with. These workshops are free & open to the public.
Any questions about attending can be directed to

Young at Heart Book Club will discuss A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray Jan. 15th at 12/noon:

Cloud Atlas meets Orphan Black in this epic dimension-bending trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray about a girl who must chase her father's killer through multiple dimensions.

Marguerite Caine's physicist parents are known for their groundbreaking achievements. Their most astonishing invention, called the Firebird, allows users to jump into multiple universes—and promises to revolutionize science forever. But then Marguerite's father is murdered, and the killer—her parent's handsome, enigmatic assistant Paul— escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite refuses to let the man who destroyed her family go free. So she races after Paul through different universes, always leaping into another version of herself. But she also meets alternate versions of the people she knows—including Paul, whose life entangles with hers in increasingly familiar ways. Before long she begins to question Paul's guilt—as well as her own heart. And soon she discovers the truth behind her father's death is far more sinister than she expected.

A Thousand Pieces of You explores an amazingly intricate multi-universe where fate is unavoidable, the truth elusive, and love the greatest mystery of all.
