It's a big weekend for the intersection of Main Street and North/South Brett Street! A Pop-Up Shop will be inside of our office here at A Little Beacon Blog from 10 am to 8 pm at 291 Main Street. It's called PIECES and features loads of vintage T-shirts, shoes, gear and more. There will be music and possibly a video game - Tony Hawk (skateboarding). Across the street is Key Food's 7th Customer Appreciation Day. They have also opened their new deli and repaved the parking lot - and we got the scoop (and tried their secret sauce Buffalo wings)! With the construction gone, it's a lot to celebrate! Come on down to Main Street and give us all a visit.

PRISON LAND, by Brett Story: Book Reading and Info Session
Day: Sunday, August 18, 2019 Time: 7 pm Location: Binnacle Books, 321 Main St., Beacon, NY
PRISON LAND offers a geographic excavation of the prison as a set of social relations - including property, work, gender, and race - enacted across various landscapes of American life. Prisons, Brett Story shows, are more than just buildings of incarceration bound to cycles of crime and punishment. Binnacle Books presents this in partnership with the Beacon Prison Rides Project, a group of volunteers dedicated to helping families stay connected to their incarcerated loved ones through daily rides and through advocacy for the reform of New York's state prison system. Binnacle Books is a sponsor of A Little Beacon Blog, and we thank them for their support! Information >
