Book Notes: Minimalists coming to Auntie’s

By The Spokesman-Review
 

The Minimalists are coming to Auntie’s.

Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus were 30-something corporate types working 70 to 80 hours a week and buying a lot of stuff. In 2011, they decided to chuck it all in, downsize and write about it.

Now their blog, theminimalists.com, draws 2 million readers a year.

They’ve published books, given TED talks and participated in South by Southwest.

Former Ohio residents, they now call Missoula home.

They’ll be at Auntie’s Bookstore, 402 W. Main Ave., at 7 p.m. Tuesday to talk about their new book, “Everything That Remains.”

For details, call the bookstore at (509) 838-0206.

Shorts on display

Also at Auntie’s this week: A “Spokane Shorties” Showcase.

The collection of short stories by local authors was published this spring as a benefit for the Get Lit! program at Eastern Washington University. At 7 p.m. Wednesday, several of the authors featured will be on hand to sign copies.

For more information, call the store or visit www.auntiesbooks.com.
