Happy New Year!

As you hunker down for another white season, you may be interested to know that our shelves are currently chock full of wonderful books – not to mention beautiful journals and world music CDs – and a lot of those titles are by regional and provincial authors. Recent arrivals include our own Lila Strand’s newly-revised paperback edition of Little Star: A Hidden Seed, the sequel to her beloved The Star Children; Revy author Laura Stovel’s Swift River: Stories of the First People and First Travellers on the Columbia River around Revelstoke; and two collections of ‘essays on ecology’ by the late, great Stan Rowe of New Denver: Home Place (Revised edition) and Earth Alive.

Some of our most popular titles are from Kootenay-born author Iona Whishaw. Her Lane Winslow mystery series is set in post-WWII Nelson and area, incorporating many regional landmarks that are familiar to local residents. We have all six books that make up the series, while a seventh installment is eagerly expected in April. The Globe and Mail calls it “a terrific series” and says Whishaw is “a writer to watch,” while Kirkus Reviews has deemed it “relentlessly exciting.” Why not spice up your winter – or that of a loved one – with this engrossing series?

We currently have a nice selection of beautiful wooden chopsticks from Japan. Whether you prefer a colourful pair to brighten up your table setting at home, or a more understated pair to use instead of disposable utensils when you go out, Raven’s Nest has you covered. Chopsticks also make great gifts!

Fall Hours!

In November Raven’s Nest will be open just four days a week, Wednesday – Saturday, 10:30 am to 4:00 pm, but from December 2 to December 24 we will be open every day for your shopping pleasure.
