more re: the Lawrence Book Crawl

(from Ruth, again):

NEWS FLASH: The Lawrence Public Library will also be holding its big book sale that day! A huge tent full o' books, right behind the library. Saturday, Sept. 30.

Here's the plan so far:

8:30ish: Kansas City folks - gather at the Village Inn in Shawnee Mission for breakfast and convoying or carpooling.

Village Inn
5800 Broadmoor St
Shawnee Mission, KS 66202

9:30ish: Jump in your cars and road trip it to Lawrence

10:00ish: Arrive in Lawrence - meet at Half Price Books on 23rd Street, then Oread Books on campus, then downtown to visit the Raven, Dusty Bookshelf, Signs of Life, Vagabond Bookman, Brits, Game Nut Entertainment, the Library Sale, and some of the other very fine and interesting stores within easy walking distance. And maybe one of the very fine downtown restaurants for dinner. And/or a street café for short breaks throughout the day to fondle your found treasures and show them off to the other book groupies. Maybe you should bring a cart?

7:00 pm: Star and Pooch and Ruth head off to the Lied Center on campus to attend a concert of Cartoon Music. Yes, that's Cartoon Music, as in Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. Interested? Tickets are still available! Click here for details.

If you need the easy directions to find the first store (where the Lawrence folks will be awaiting), email Ruth for directions.
