Different Drummer announces new series at a new location – Golf and Country Club.

Ian Elliott has this delightful way of getting his message out.  He is a soft-spoken man, looks like the bookseller he is.  He has learned that just running a bookshop is not going to cover all the bills so he has branched out and now markets in several rather interesting ways.

Whenever there is a major speaker in town A Different Drummer Bookstore can usually be seen with a table off to the side with copies of the speakers books set out neatly.

Elliott set up his own speakers event and now cooperates with several other booksellers and brings in an author to talk about their book.   Polite, erudite and well – let’s let Ian Elliott use his own words as he announces Spring 2014 BOOK & AUTHOR SERIES which he describes as an electrifying literary series we’re so delighted to host

Our famously long-running series returns.  Nine authors once again visit Burlington to present their new works over three splendid mornings.

Please note: NEW LOCATION:  We have a change of venue this season:  The Book & Author Series will take place in the sterling setting of the Burlington Golf and Country Club,  422 North Shore Boulevard East in Burlington.

Not sure how the view of that smoky old steel mill gets described as “sterling” but let’s not get picky, I’ll not get a cucumber sandwich if I keep that up.

The dates: April 15; April 29;  and May 27.

Series tickets are $55, available starting Saturday, March 15 at 9am at the bookstore.

At each session, we meet at nine for refreshments, and the morning’s presentation starts at 9:30 am.  The authors will speak to us, answer questions, and inscribe their books.

Among the illustrious guests appearing this season are Eva Stachniak, Kate Pullinger, Jennifer McMahon, Lynn Thompson, Plum Johnson and Ray Robertson.

And we have many more wonderful literary events in the offing.  We’ll bring you all details soon.  We are ever proud and happy to be your bookstore!

There you have it.
