Who is the Raven?

raven.jpgAn elusive creature, the River City Raven flies in an out of the store in an instant. When you stop by River City Books, don’t blink or you’re likely to miss him. Amazingly, though, the Raven stays long enough to cull important information about your favorite neighborhood bookstore, compiling everything you need to know about literary events around town. One of the most intelligent birds on the planet, ravens are ingenious and versatile — and there may be no better example of the bird’s cognitive ability than is demonstrated in the day-to-day dealings of the River City Raven. He flies like the wind, reads dictionaries for fun, and crafts posts to this Web log before you even knew he was there. River City Books manager Jon Lee has tried to take photographs of the Raven but all that comes out is a blur.
