February 2014 Events

Hello! Wow - I can't believe that it's February already. This feels like another year that is just going to fly by. I haven't been to too many bookish events this year yet but I have a feeling that it's going to pick up pretty soon, if the Feb calender is any indication. Lots of good stuff is happening this month and we hope that you can make it out to some of these events.
