As of September 1, 2023, Wheatgrass Books has entered its 12th year of business. Owner, Lisa Snow, bought the business, the Drawing Room, from Patricia Buckley in 2012. Lisa changed the name, added a juice bar, and over time expanded the gallery, the selection of gifts, and books. Wheatgrass is now a balance of new books, gifts, souvenirs and a gallery. With year-round author and artist events, Wheatgrass celebrates on a daily basis the beauty that we can find in the written word and in the art of illustration.

“I just knew that I wanted to take people out of the norm, which is what theatre does. But I didn’t want all the conventions and trappings of theatre, of a three-act play. I imagined creating this little sanctuary on stage in which flour from Irish fields and water from Irish rivers could be transformed into a potent metaphor for our connecting to language, landscape and life.”
Manchan Magan
It’s never easy to ask for help, but sometimes it’s worth it! Two free performances of Aran & Im (Bread & Butter) will take place at Wheatgrass  October 14th, an exploration of language, landscape, and life as well as an attempt to make connections to at-risk indigenous language and culture in the area.  Please help us bring Manchan Magan to Wheatgrass.  Any donation amount is welcome!

A Livingston Selfie Mural by Local Artist Kay Potter

“Once upon a time when women were birds, there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy. The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated.”
– Terry Tempest Williams
