November in Cambridge

Hello from the Bookstore news1

Hello from the bookstore. This newsletter is our way of keeping in touch with our loyal customers -- to highlight new releases, upcoming author visits, and other bookish news. Amid this bewildering week, we'll still bring you all of those things in this edition. But I'll also take this quick opportunity to note that we at Harvard Book Store work to make our store a place where all readers will feel welcome -- where they'll find both solitude and community; where they'll find diverse voices and ideas. And where they'll meet and engage with others who cherish these things.

Hello, and welcome. We hope to see you at the bookstore soon.

Thanks for Choosing Harvard Book Store news4

We appreciate the feedback we get from readers of this newsletter. Please send any comments to Alex at newsletter@harvard.com.

Thanks for reading,

Alexis de Tocqueville and Democracy in America
by Michael Kammen


Print on Demand, paperback
