We’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 27th) by giving an EXTRA 10% discount to EVERYONE who buys something at ABC on this day. If you normally already get 10% off with us, you’ll get 20% discount off all your purchases in our stores in Amsterdam and The Hague!
(Please note that the extra discount is only off items in the brick stores – so no extra discount on books ordered that day, special orders that have not yet arrived, anything you want mailed to your home, or ebooks.)
Our €7,- Thanksgiving gift voucher, another tradition, should arrive in your mailbox within the next few weeks (if you have a valid and registered ABC discount card). It’s valid in both our stores on any purchase made from November 27th thru December 31st, 2014.
- Runic divination with Fiona Peel in Amsterdam.
- Thanksgiving Dinner at the ABC Treehouse in Amsterdam. Please reserve your spot.
- There will also be a Thanksgiving Dinner in ABC Treehut in The Hague this year for the first time (reserve your spot here). Our favorite American Netherlander Greg Shapiro will do his Greg thing (talk lots and be funny!) and sign copies of his book How To Be Orange. This year Greg celebrates 20 years of being in The Netherlands and 20 years of Pulp Fiction! He’ll be in the ABC Treehut in The Hague for Thanksgiving dinner from 18.00 – 20.00 hrs.
- Meet and greet Sehrazad Ayse Uslu, the author of The Roots That Clutch from 12.00 – 14.00 hrs in The Hague. The Roots That Clutch tells the haunting true story of how a young woman discovered, through her PhD research on T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound, that her grandmother had had an affair with the other great American Modernist, William Carlos Williams. She also discovered that her father may be the biological child of Williams.
YOU can say THANKS yourself this year by donating your old books to Better World Books (more on that in a separate post here). You can just bring one book or a whole box with you when you visit us in Amsterdam or The Hague from November 27th until January 5th, 2015.
