Historias is Carlos Mock’s latest musings on his past seen through his imagination. A set of short stories ranging from childhood jokes to life and death situations. Carlos was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and migrated north in his twenties. He has been active in the LGBT community for many years primarily in Chicago. In addition to his books, he has written op-ed pieces for Chicago Tribune and Windy City Times among others.

"Carlos Mock adds a new title to his growing bookshelf of unforgettable stories from his Puerto Rican roots – his gallery of relatives, his personal coming-out. This one is skillfully sutured together with vivid historias from his career as an obstetrician. – Patricia Nell Warren, Author.

“Historias is Carlos Mock’s most personal and intimate book, and I believe his best yet. These short stories, some barely more than anecdotes, resonate powerfully, with their mixture of revelation, symbolism, and Caribbean folklore. His autobiographical and medical tales are unique and compelling.” – Felice Picano, Author.

Carlos Mock will read from and talk about his book, chat with you, and sign copies of his books on Wednesday, August 27th at 7:00 PM. It's all happening here at New England Mobile Book Fair. See you then!

On Saturday, June 15th, we held the award ceremony for our first essay contest. Newton 6th graders were asked why they think bookstores are important. The responses were many, diverse, entertaining, and encouraging to say the least.

The winners, Noah, Julia, and Abigail, each received gift certificates good toward anything in our store. In addition, their essays will be hung in our Young Readers Room this week for all to see.

Our staff, the writers and their families had a great time! Many asked if there would be more contests like this. Why yes, yes there will be more contest like this, so stay tuned :-)

Pictured are, from L-R: Fran Mermelstein (Contest Coordinator), Julia Bosco, Noah Leikind, Tom Lyons (Owner), and Abigail Lau.

Once again, great job to all who entered!
