Madeline & Sam’s Magical Storytime @ Boneshaker Books,2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
It is our mission with this story time to promote children’s books that shine a spotlight on a wide array of racial and cultural identities, genders, orientations, experiences and abilities. We want to create a space that places a special emphasis on promoting self love, empathy and a greater understanding of the strange, magical world we inhabit. There is serious deficit in children’s books that depict protagonists who are a people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ or any combination of the above. That is why Madeline and Sam’s Magical Story Time seeks out books that do just that. Positive representation in books is crucial to a child’s development of a positive self image. It can be absolutely life affirming for a child to see a protagonist who reflects them accomplishing anything they set their mind to. It is also crucial in developing empathy for a child to experience diversity at a young age. This story time will not only be educational, but spectacularly fun! Before each reading we will have one minute wiggle parties and coloring pages that correlate with that weeks books. Come out to Boneshaker Books every Saturday between 11 AM and Noon starting June 9th to experience a story time that celebrates every child for the magical person that they are! Let’s have some fun!!

Science Book Club: The Botany of Desire @ Boneshaker Books,2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
The August 4 science book club selection is “The Botany of Desire,” by Michael Pollan. Copies are in stock at Boneshaker for $13.60, a 20% discount off the regular paperback price. Boneshaker’s Science Book Club reads books that are science-related, but hopefully accessible to those without an academic background in science. We seek to select titles that are in line with Boneshaker’s mission of social justice. **No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, etc.** Boneshaker Books is ADA accessible, with no stairs or steps leading into, or in, the store. We have one single-stall, all-gender restroom. Boneshaker is located off the #2 and 67 bus lines, and is a short distance from the Blue Line light rail. Multiple bikeways provide access to the store, and ample bike parking is available. For people driving, there is plenty of street parking. ABOUT THE BOOK: The book that helped make Michael Pollan, the New York Times bestselling author of How to Change Your Mind, Cooked and The Omnivore’s Dilemma, one of the most trusted food experts in America. Every schoolchild learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers: The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and, in the process, spreads the flowers’ genes far and wide. In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship. He masterfully links four fundamental human desires—sweetness, beauty, intoxication, and control—with the plants that satisfy them: the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato. In telling the stories of four familiar species, Pollan illustrates how the plants have evolved to satisfy humankind’s most basic yearnings. And just as we’ve benefited from these plants, we have also done well by them. So who is really domesticating whom?

Faith Boblett: Faith pulls inspiration from singer-songwriters like Brandi Carlile, Stevie Wonder, Lissie, and Ryan Adams. She plays with her band, as well as solo acoustic sets. Faith bends boundaries and doesn’t exactly fit into one box. If she gets asked what kind of music she plays, she usually says, “Ummm, singer-songwriter songs that get worked on by the full band, that turn into whatever they’re supposed to be? I guess, pop in the classical sense, not bubble gum, with rock and alternative sensibility, sometimes a little rootsy, too? I suck at answering this question…”

Y la Bamba / Fiamma/ DJ Christopher St. Christopher @ Moon Palace Books • 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm • $10 • 21+
Luz Elena Mendoza’s story is one sung to her ancestors and humanity, exploring a faith that is greater than just religion, and a life of metamorphosis and awakening. Born in San Francisco as a first generation daughter of immigrant parents from Michoacan Mexico, she spent her childhood raised by the melodies and stories that were being told through traditional Mexican folk songs. From the intimate, contemplative verses in her native-language, to the revelations of the history in her roots, her story is delivered with poise. Mendozas poetic expression is raw, and ever evolving. These songs are a soundtrack built for coming to grips with, not just one’s own mortality, but the fragility of the world, presenting sounds that carry the realness of ancestral trauma and the search of identity.

Join us for this month’s film, “The Long Shadow”. The films are free and open to the public, but space is limited – please reserve your seat! “Old sins cast long shadows” — Danish proverb Of all the divisions in America, none is as insidious and destructive as racism. In this powerful documentary, the filmmakers, both privileged daughters of the South, who were haunted by their families slave owning pasts, passionately seek the hidden truth and the untold stories of how America—guided by the South’s powerful political influence—steadily, deliberately and at times secretly, established white privilege in our institutions, laws, culture and economy. Peacebuilding films are typically the 4th Tuesday of each month at the Birchwood Cafe. Bring your appetites for positive social justice change and good real food!
