Literary Delights in this month's Midwest Living

February's Midwest Living magazine is particularly bookish. First off, there's a wonderful column on one of our favorite gift books, The Oxford Project. We do still have several copies of the book with signatures from both photographer Peter Feldstein and writer Stephen Bloom.

Greg Philby's editor's note is all about how much he loves to read, both alone and with his daughter. Their pick of the moment? Anne Ylvisaker's Little Klein, winner of the Midwest Booksellers Association's Choice award. It's a boy-and-his-dog story set in the 1940's that the librarian-reviewer in School Library Journal compared to The Penderwicks.

Best of all, Schwartz is featured in their "Tale of Five Bookstores" roundup of interesting midwestern bookstores. You may fantasize about a new car, but my idea of a good time is planning a fantasy trip to Wichita to visit Watermark Books and Cafe.

Copies are available at all our shops through February while supplies last.
