A new study from Yale…i.e., more time to read!
Join children’s book author Matt Damon at Logos on Saturday, August 13th at 10:00 am for a reading of his new book: The Fall of General Custard or The Overthrow of a Leftover.
This epic and tasty tale of war and peas in the “Fridge” is targeted for ages 5-10, but is really written as a true “everybody book”, guaranteed to leave all ages smiling with delight and feeling admiration for the edible heroines and heroes who save the day.
“It’s always good when consumers are aware of how creators get paid—but there’s no shame in not buying new.” So says Salon!

We just received four signed copies of Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear . Come on down to Logos and pick one up!
Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert’s books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers powerful insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and to let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love (and how to face down what we most fear). She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits that are needed in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us uncover the “strange jewels” that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, or to make art, or to find new ways to address challenges in our work, or to give ourselves permission to embark on a dream long deferred, or simply to infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.
