B&N August 2010 Events (Robyn, Rosanne Cash, Kristin Hersh, Dave Mustaine, Kathy Griffin)

Kristin Hersh - Rat Girl Rosanne Cash - Composed

In September, Barnes & Noble will begin an aggressive promotion of its Nook e-readers by building 1,000-square-foot boutiques in all of its stores, with sample Nooks, demonstration tables, video screens and employees who will give customers advice and operating instructions.

To make room for the new Nook displays, Barnes & Noble plans to clear out some of its music merchandise, which in its superstores takes up 3,600 square feet, and to arrange its books more efficiently. Mr. Lynch said that the number of books on display in Barnes & Noble stores would not decrease.

Here’s a list of August 2010 B&N and Borders events that I thought were interesting for one reason or another:
