“Adventures in Warhol Land,” Family Fun at the Aerodrome, and More!

Oblong Books & Music
We’re getting into the hottest month of the year. You know how you survive the heat? By lounging inside with a cold pitcher of lemonade and a nice, fat book. You can even grab them for a bargain! Stop by Oblong Millerton and head up to our third-floor sale room to peruse our cheapest titles, or swing by Oblong Rhinebeck from August 18 to August 20 for our annual Summer Sidewalk Sale. Can’t get to the store? We’ve got a 20% off signed YA books sale – online only! After all, there’s nothing like a good book found on a budget.
