Dear Friends of A Novel Experience,  
    
      We now join the ranks of folks who have had a computer crash...and with it, much of our data...we are focused now on one word: back-up. Our apologies for a late monthly newsletter! August is always a bit of an in-between month for us--still really, really hot and humid. The start of the school year next week always takes us by surprise. It seems so early! And, the store is getting ready to be one of the main gathering places for the 15th edition of SlowExposures, due on September 14th through the 17th--we hope  you visit the show in Concord and stop by to see what's happening in the store and around the Square for that wonderful weekend of photography of the rural South. 

      Without further ado, on with the show! Visit us to see Tina Brown's wonderful photo show on all-things-water. Enjoy the last month of our pool of beach reads. Be a part of one of our book clubs. Enjoy the whisper of fall in the air on some early mornings. Stop by and catch us up on what you're reading!

August 2017 Calendar

 
WE ARE OPEN MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY 10 TILL 7 P.M.!   
 


 
AUGUST at the GALLERY: Water as a Verb by Tina Brown features work by this award-winning photographer. Here's what she says: Water actively forms our lives and shapes our environment. It is never the same, to our eyes, our skin, our land. Water is seldom still and eagerly fills in the gaps around it. It has the power to transport us. Join me in this photographic study of Water as a Verb. 

Stay tuned for date and time for Tina's Artist's Reception!
