November is sometimes known as "stick season" in these parts, but it brings the promise of long evenings of cozy reading; and for us at the bookstore, it also brings our Week of Gratitude, leading up to Small Business Saturday. We love taking this opportunity each year to say thank you to all of the folks who support The Galaxy Bookshop and our fellow independent retailers by shopping locally.

If you've already started your holiday shopping, you'll be happy to know that we are putting out cards, Advent calendars, and holiday themed books at the beginning of the month.

We look forward to seeing you soon
at the bookstore!
We Will Be Closed on
Thursday, November 28th, for Thanksgiving.

Tuesday, November 12, 7 p.m. Sydney Lea
Former Vermont Poet Laureate Sydney Lea returns to The Galaxy Bookshop with his new collection of poems, Here. In his thirteenth book of poetry, Lea gives voice to the deep connection between human life and the
natural world as well as their fragility and transience.
Here is a title, but it’s also a statement, an incantation and affirmation: “Let’s chant it throughout the year,” Lea writes, “like so much birdsong: we’re here we’re here we’re here.”
Tuesday, November 19, 7 p.m.
Patty Crane
Join us in welcoming local poet Patty Crane for a reading from her new book of poetry, Bell I Wake To. The poems in this volume create a sacred space honoring seasons, generations, the body, and every living creature the poet comes across. 
Crane lives part of the year in Craftsbury, Vermont.
