Groovy beats and vegan treats! Come to Moon Palace Books and hear some excellent groups with excellent grooves.
A.M. Stryker – This singer-songwriter is branching out from his acoustic fingerpicking styles and incorporating drum machine beats and spooky synth sounds. His friend Nathan said, “It sounds like Nick Cave trapped in outer space.”
Strange Relations – Minneapolis diary rock band Strange Relations, featuring Casey Sowa (drums/vocals) and her girlfriend Maro Helgeson (bass/synth), don’t fit the typical mold of a pop group. Building tracks around a propulsive rhythm section, Strange Relations feed off their long-term relationship to capture an energy and intimacy that cannot be forced or faked, weaving through each track like a burst of fresh air through the haze.
Adelyn Rose – Powerful sweeping sounds and incredible songwriting from Adelyn Strei and her band.

Saturday, September 1

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.
PWM Family Musique Ages 0-5 Summer Session @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 10am

A fun morning of song and dance that fosters music appreciation and basic beat & pitch competency. Music is offered that catches a child’s imagination and that inspires participation, play, and learning through active music making. Children will “play with” musical materials in the same way that they learn art by “playing with” pencils, crayons, and paints or learn language by “playing with” sounds, words, and ideas. In class, we sing, dance, play instruments, laugh, and explore music and movement in a relaxed yet focused setting. Flexible environment for new students and continuing students alike.

One-Shot Comics Book Club: My Brother’s Husband @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join us for a discussion of Gengoroh Tagame’s Eisner Award-winning manga MY BROTHER’S HUSBAND. As always, copies of the book are available at Moon Palace for 20% off. Thanks for supporting comics and your local independent bookstore!
About the book (from the publisher): ***WINNER OF THE 2018 EISNER AWARD FOR BEST U.S. EDITION OF INTERNATIONAL MATERIAL — ASIA*** Yaichi is a work-at-home suburban dad in contemporary Tokyo; formerly married to Natsuki, father to their young daughter, Kana. Their lives suddenly change with the arrival at their doorstep of a hulking, affable Canadian named Mike Flanagan, who declares himself the widower of Yaichi’s estranged gay twin, Ryoji. Mike is on a quest to explore Ryoji’s past, and the family reluctantly but dutifully takes him in. What follows is an unprecedented and heartbreaking look at the state of a largely still-closeted Japanese gay culture: how it’s been affected by the West, and how the next generation can change the preconceptions about it and prejudices against it. (Please note: This book is a traditional work of manga, and reads back to front and right to left.)
Reviews: “Renowned manga artist Gengoroh Tagame turns his stunning draftsmanship to a story very different from his customary fare, to delightful and heartwarming effect.” —Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home
“Heartbreaking yet hopeful, Gengoroh Tagame’s beautifully rendered meditation on the struggle for gay acceptance in today’s Japan is quietly dazzling. I am already looking forward to part two!” —Anderson Cooper, CNN

Two from the North: Reading with Jim Johnson and Bart Sutter @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Jim Johnson grew up in Cloquet, taught in the public schools of Duluth and at the College of St. Scholastica, and now divides his time between Cedar Falls, Iowa, and his cabin south of Ely. He has published nine books of poetry: Finns in Minnesota Midwinter, A Field Guide to Blueberries, Wolves, Dovetailed Corners, The Coop Label, Driving Gravel Roads, The First Day of Spring in Northern Minnesota, Yoik, and, his most recent, Text for a Nomadic Future (Red Dragonfly). Jim has served two terms as the Poet Laureate of Duluth and has twice won the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award.
Bart Sutter grew up in tiny towns in Minnesota and Iowa, worked for ten years in the printing trade, and thereafter taught at various universities, retiring from the University of Wisconsin, Superior, in 2011. A resident of Duluth for thirty years, Bart has written for public radio, he has had four verse plays produced, and he often performs as one-half of The Sutter Brothers, a poetry-and-music duo. The author of nine books, he is the only writer to win the Minnesota Book Award in three categories: poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. His new collection is Nordic Accordion: Poems in a Scandinavian Mood. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=3340
