Twilight

We are so excited to report about a rather unusual and incredible Milk + Bookies event.

A high school student in LA is hosting a concert in her back yard this weekend. The entrance fee is a TWILIGHT book for the very worthy recipients at BOOK ROOTS, a new non-profit that starts teen book clubs in group homes. The TWILIGHT series is obviously a popular title and a great gateway book for teens to get excited about reading.

Oh, and did we mention that this particular high school student is the daughter of a GUNS N ROSES member? That is going to be one amazing back yard jam.

Check out the BOOK ROOTS wish list.

See? We told you that M+B can mold to any kind of party!

Little Junebugs

Pasadena is one lucky city. It is now the proud home to LITTLE JUNEBUGS, a crafting studio, book store and party space! This adorable garden themed shop is heaven on earth for young kids. With story time every weekend and even a monthly adult crafting night, LITTLE JUNEBUGS is our favorite place ever.

And if that weren’t enough, they have become one of our first retail partners! LITTLE JUNEBUGS understands the importance of giving and getting books and has set up a permanant MILK + BOOKIES table inside their store where children can buy books, inscribe them and drop them in the box that will be delivered to local kids in need.
