When Samantha Miller started working at Carmichael's four years ago, she asked if we could sell an older book, Jim The Boy, published in 2001. It was one of her favorite books, and she swore that if we carried it, we could sell it. Now, we've sold over 100 copies of this beloved book, and we are going to celebrate. Tony Earley himself will be here, along with actors from the Kentucky Shakespeare Company, and we'll also have cake and live music. So, even if you've never read the book, join us to celebrate a fabulous bookseller and one of her favorite writers of all time.
Both delightful and wise, Jim the Boy brilliantly captures the pleasures and fears of youth at a time when America itself was young and struggling to come into its own.
