Come and experience the magic at the Books are Magic book shop through November.

Celebrate the release of the previously unfinished fairy tale of Mark Twain, “The Purloining of Prince Oleomargar­ine” on Nov. 4 at 11 am, with an all day read-a-thon. The tale was brought to life by author Philip Stead and illustrator Erin Stead. The day also marks the 150th anniversary of Mark Twain’s very first book “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and Other Sketches.”

On Nov. 5 at 1 pm The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators presents a new series, Back 2 Back, which features children’s book veterans with new talent. Nov. 5 welcomes Lisa Desimini and Andrea Tsurumi, who will read their books and host a fun story time.

Jancee Dunn launches her new picture book “I’m Afraid Your Teddy is in Trouble Today” on Nov. 11 at 11 am Jancee answers the question, “Have you ever wondered what stuffed animals do while their companion humans are at school?” The adorable story is a whimsical tale of freedom and comes to life in Scott Nash’s colorful illustrations.

All the events are free, open to the public, and are suitable for all ages. RSVP is requested.
