When the cruel disease of Alzheimer's crept into the mind of Jann Arden's mother, they found solace and comfort in Arden's kitchen and the meals she would prepare. On December 17th she joins us in-store to sign her latest memoir Feeding My Mother, inspiring and heartrending in equal measure. Prepare to be moved as she shares the effects that the disease has had on their relationship in a way that only Jann Arden can.

Bolen Books would like to say Thank you and to wish you a wonderful World Gratitude Day. It has been nine months since we lost Mel Bolen and in that time we have had a chance to reflect on just how many things in life there are to feel grateful for. From life changing events like welcoming a new member of the family to the simple things like when someone holds a door for you.

We, of course, are incredibly thankful for your patronage and recently introduced our new gratitude program. Our gift certificates have been immensely popular over the years and ​recipients​ love shopping with them. We are now offering pre-stamped thank you cards should you want to send a note to the person you received the gift from. The card​s are available at all our cash desk and we have a writing table near one of our front window for you to take a quiet moment to fill them ​out​.

We wish you all the very best in life and hope you have a chance today to look around and see all the truly wonderful things life has to offer.
