Stars and Stripes at Kepler's

The sun is out, so grab your sunscreen and light up that grill. Here at Kepler’s we are celebrating Independence Day by giving back to our customers: From July 3rd to July 5th we will cover your sales tax! No, that is not a typo: for those three days you will pay no sales tax. No taxation without representation? How about no tax at all!

Kepler’s has quite the variety of patriotic reading to enjoy by the pool. From revered historians like (recently deceased) Howard Zinn, Timothy Egan, and Nathaniel Philbrick (a personal favorite!) to WP Kinsella’s Shoeless Joe, the inspiration for Field of Dreams, the booksellers here have plenty of Americana recommendations.

Also on our shelves is the 20th Anniversary edition of Tim O’Brien’s Vietnam War classic The Things They Carried. Kepler’s Head Buyer, Frank Sanchez writes:

april 30 2010

was the 35th anniversary of the end of the vietnam war

this year marks the 20th anniversary of tim o'brien's "the things they carried"

the book is not new

the book is not old

it is timeless

a masterpiece

quite simply one of the best works of american fiction of the late 20th century

I would also recommend "Hero Found" by Bruce Henderson about Dieter Dengler (made famous by Herzog's films). At your store on July 21st.
