Come enjoy a glass of wine, live readings, and artwork inspired by Melville’s classic. 15% of the Sale Price of each piece will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of the CSRA for after school programs.

The Martian by Andy Weir

the martian

The Martian is my newest favourite book. I personally guarantee it, so if you buy a copy from us and don’t like it, bring it back and we’ll give you 24$ to spend on whatever else you want in the store. Need more than my recommendation? My wife loves it too. A friend told me it was “Apollo 13 on Steroids”. I could go on and on, but just swing by and read the first page. Once you start, you won’t be able to put it down.

Win A Signed Copy of S.
by JJ Abrams & Doug Dorst!

Simple rules: BUY a copy of S. from The Book Tavern during March 2014 and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a signed bookplate especially designed for the book. JJ Abrams and Doug Dorst only sent these to Indie bookstores, so you won’t find them at the chains or online. You can double your chances by posting your purchase and the contest to your twitter or facebook and tagging us in the post. Good Luck!
