Laurel Book Store is a neighborhood gathering place where we delight in finding you the book you want, even if you don't know what it is. We'll hunt for the title you ask for or suggest those you might enjoy reading or giving.
There is a whole summer ahead for reading in the hammock or under a tree, or in your favorite chair. Check out the Indie Bestsellers for some wonderful ideas or see what we're recommending.
Speaking of recommendations, our guest this month is
Annalee Allen, Coordinator of the
Oakland Tours Program.
(And Oakland's Mother of the Year!)
She's the one to contact if you want to get to know more about Oakland, and really, who doesn't? Voted Most Exciting City by Movoto, a real estate blog, number five on the New York Times global list of "must visit" places, and home to the Laurel Book Store.
Some of her recommendations can be found here, under
