Children's Book Week 2014 at Addendum!

Today is the first day of Children's Book Week, 2014! If you are unfamiliar with CBW, it is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading.

"Established in 1919, Children's Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes -- wherever young readers and books connect! Each year, bookstores from coast to coast are selected as official event venues." - Book Week Online

We're pleased to announce that Addendum was asked to be one of the official bookstores for 2014!  Check out all the official bookstores and their events across the country - for the first time ever all 50 states are participating!

We had our official kick off to CBW yesterday, with Pete Hautman at Addendum. In addition to the amazing book offer from Pete (read our post to find out what it was!), guests also received a free tote and poster for CBW 2014 (see top photo).

If you weren't able to make it Sunday, you have another chance to receive the CBW tote and poster! Join us at The Textile Center (3000 University Ave. SE, Minneapolis 55414) this Thursday, May 15th from 6-8pm. We will be celebrating the release of local author and illustrator Michael Hall's newest book - It's an Orange Aardvark! The Textile Center studio will feature Michael’s giclee prints, paper collages and sketches from published and unpublished work on exhibit from May 15 – 31. 
Addendum will be selling books for the event, and we will be handing out free CBW totes and posters, while supplies last!


You can also celebrate CBW with us at another off-site event this weekend - Teen Lit Con! More info tomorrow.
