Book Group - our general book club- CANCELED

OUR BOOK GROUPS ARE ON PAUSE WHILE THE WORLD REBUILDS WHATEVER NORMAL IS TO BE. Our Book Groups (regular and history) at Byrd’s Books meet on Thursdays from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. each month. These are open Book Groups - you are welcome to come if you would like to join us for discussions. For information call: 203-730-2973. We make every effort to have the book available in paper for the Book Groups and choose a hardcover only rarely.

The general Book Group meets the third Thursday of the month (changed for holiday conflicts).

Any cancellations due to weather will be posted on our website and our Facebook page.  Some of us meet at 6:30 for take-out. Please email Alice (alice@byrdsbooks.com) to join in for the meal before the discussion.

Bookmark Contest -now through May 31st

Every year during the month of May we have a summer bookmark contest. Kids and adults design a bookmark of a book they love. We have guest judges choose a winner and runner-up in each of five categories/age groups - then we print 100 each of the winning bookmarks.

The five winners get a $25 gift certificate to Byrd's Books and 25 of their bookmark to give away. We keep the rest. Honorable mentions get a $10 gift certificate.

We use our copies of the bookmarks to give out all summer long!

We are going to start the contest now and go through the month of May, so you have plenty of time. There is one submission per person, and teachers may use them with students, we just need the completed entries by May 31st. Instructions for submitting them are on the entry form. We cannot wait to see your favorite books in art!
