October Newsletter from
Sheridan Stationery Books & Gallery


Autumn has officially arrived and we now look forward to cleaning up our gardens and flowerbeds and putting yard work behind us until next year. The days are much shorter and we start spending more time in the house. We have some wonderful books to recommend for your reading pleasure during these longer nights.
We also carry Halloween greeting cards and spooky books for little goblins. Hunting season is here and we sell maps to guide you on your next hunting trip. You can also hunt for bucks in historic downtown Sheridan, Chamber Bucks that is. Check out this fun promotion for shopping local. It's a win-win deal for all of us.  
Join the Nationwide Crenshaw Food Drive October 1-31 
"Jackson and his family have fallen on hard times. There's no more money for rent. And not much for food, either. His parents, his little sister, and their dog may have to live in their minivan. Again. Crenshaw is a cat. He's large, he's outspoken, and he's imaginary. He has come back into Jackson's life to help him. But is an imaginary friend enough to save this family from losing everything?" --

Crenshaw is imaginary. Childhood hunger isn't. Help us feed families in need.
This October, Macmillan Children's Publishing Group is partnering with independent bookstores to host a nationwide food drive to raise awareness of childhood hunger. Inspired by Crenshaw, a new middle grade novel by Newbery Medalist Katherine Applegate, bookstores are teaming up with food pantries to collect items for children in need.
    Did you know...
  • Nearly one in five kids in America lives in a household that struggles to put food on the table.
  • Three out of five K-8 public school teachers say they regularly see students come to school hungry.
  • Teachers of hungry kids spend, on average, about $37 of their own money each month to buy food for students.

Drop off non-perishable food at our store and we will take it to our local food bank. Let's take help our community address childhood hunger.


Book Signing for

 "The Commander and the Chief"

 by Susan Smith

Sat Oct 17th

1-3 pm



Dr. Nova Orlovic has many doubts about President Lincoln Todd's version of her husband's death. Educated as a scientist and lawyer, Nova smells a cover-up. Stonewalled and threatened, the "Chief", as Nova is known-she's half Cheyenne, goes on the warpath against the Todd Administration.

With help from a trusted advisor with long reaching connections, Nova assembles a team of Brits including a Royal Navy medical officer, Commander Reginald Barrett, to get to the bottom of it. During their expedition, the Commander and the Chief annoy each other until mutual respect bonds them. But when they stumble upon evidence that could take down the powerful, will they manage to make it out alive?

Join us when we host Susan Smith for a book signing on October 17th from 1-3 pm.
