And Father's Day Is STILL a Good Time to Buy a Book

Because Dad (and Gramps and Poppa) deserve the thought that counts

Indian Summer in November

What a beautiful weekend this has promised and fulfilled to be!

Downtown Dixon has just been hopping. Last night was the Opening Night Reception for Next Picture Show's newest judged show -- "Shades of Grey," which is of black & white photographs. If only we all had enough cash and wall space to honor these entries which range from the cerebrally compositional to the thought-provoking to the quirky to the soothingly familiar. Check it out! Also, Judy Dixon is showing at Crystal Cork which is now open to the public on Saturday nights. They too have live music.

Tonight, here at Books on First, we have a very special live performance from duo Maddie's Farm. All the way from Muscatine, Iowa, Vicki & Marvin Plank have some great songs from the 70s and 80s to tickle the memory as well as covers of Alanis Morrissette, Sheryl Crow and other more contemporary singers.
