PoeFest: Student Writing Competition 2018

PoeFest is celebrating its 10th year commemorating the works of Edgar Allan Poe, and you can be a part of it all at multiple locations throughout Phoenix, Arizona this October. PoeFest has been a labor of love for a decade. When PoeFest first opened, it did so to just six audience members. With a packed audience on the third night, they knew they had something special. The fest includes mainstage productions of Poe’s short stories every weekend during the month of October with Poe’s stories rotate nightly. PoeFest culminates on Halloween night with ‘The Raven’ at Rosson House Museum. But there’s something extra special about PoeFest that makes Bookmans honored to be a sponsor!

Win Big with Mesa’s “The Great Geek Giveaway”

According to Urban Dictionary  “geeking out” is when one likes to  “spend an amount of time discussing geekish things with other geeks or to participate in geeky undertakings and  pastimes with one or more other geeks.” Let’s face it, we all have those things that make us geek out. You’re a member of the club too. Enjoy fumbling through a new book? What about powering up with the latest video game? Like debating whether or not to open that new toy? What about collecting unusual tchotchkes? It’s your geek out, and you like what you like. We understand that. We truly believe that geeking out is half the fun and we’d like to help you take it to the next boss level with a Great Geek Giveaway at Bookmans Mesa!
