November 2019 Newsletter
November is here, and before we know it, December will arrive. We will be closed on Thanksgiving day, but open 9am to 8pm on Friday for the Christmas Stroll. It's time to start thinking about your holiday shopping. We carry a large variety of books in the store, but if we don't have the one you are looking for, we can order it in. Orders are placed three times a week, and if the book is in-stock at our distributor, they usually arrive within a week.
We also carry a large selection of calendars, and other gift items. Be sure to take a look at our assortment of Holiday greeting cards, and boxed Christmas cards.
Two authors will be joining us this month for book signings. Take a look at their books, they will make terrific gifts. At Sheridan Stationery, we offer free giftwrapping, and you'll leave with a very festive package.

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. ~Theodore Roosevelt

For Daeios
by Colleen Eccles Penor

Fleeing apocalyptic weather, a young survivalist woman and her family seek safety deep underground. But a new danger awaits them.
When the leaders of the shelter announce their plans to repopulate the earth using all fertile females, Shea knows she will be forced to become a breeder. Horrified at her impending fate, Shea must make the gut-wrenching decision whether to breed with an elderly, sadistic man and bear his child, or to fight the breeding, knowing that defiance will endanger her life and that of those she loves most.
A dystopian thriller with overtones of The Handmaid’s Tale, Shea’s chilling story will appeal to readers with an interest in family and survival.

November Staff Picks
The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell            release date 11/5/19
Be careful who you let in. Soon after her twenty-fifth birthday, Libby Jones returns home from work to find the letter she's been waiting for her entire life. She rips it open with one driving thought: I am finally going to know who I am. She soon learns not only the identity of her birth parents, but also that she is the sole inheritor of their abandoned mansion on the banks of the Thames in London's fashionable Chelsea neighborhood, worth millions. Everything in Libby's life is about to change. But what she can't possibly know is that others have been waiting for this day as well--and she is on a collision course to meet them.
Cilka's Journey by Heather Morris    
From the author of the bestseller, The Tattooist of Auschwitz, comes a novel based on an incredible true story of a 16-year-old who learns quickly that power, even unwillingly given, equals survival.
The Dearly Beloved by Cara Wall
"God and literary fiction don’t always get along; perhaps that’s why Cara Wall’s The Dearly Beloved, a thoughtful debut that follows the lives of two ministers and their wives, feels so galvanizing. Its four characters get equal voice—Charles, son of a rigid academic; Lily, orphaned as a child; James, born into family hardship; Nan, a well-adjusted minister’s daughter—as they go to college, get married, find their callings, and weather tragedies. Wall’s approach is deceptively quiet and stirringly romantic. Here is the power of the novel in its simplest, richest form: bearing intimate witness to human beings grappling with their faith and falling in love. That Wall executes it so beautifully? Well, this is exactly why we read literary fiction...The best book about faith in recent memory.”ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

  8. Make the topping: In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, and salt and mix well.
  9. Add the chunks of cold butter and the cinnamon...
  10. And use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles pebbles and coarse crumbs.
