Events Buzz: Tax-Free Weekend and August Happenings

dollar signDon’t forget, everyone, this coming weekend, August 10-11, is TAX-FREE WEEKEND!!  Come out and support your favorite local businesses.  When you support local, independent businesses, your money stays in the community: providing jobs and helping the local economy.  You’re helping independent businesses flourish and achieve their dreams—so they can make your community a better place to live.


To sweeten the deal even more for our friends in the community, Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester is adding even more incentive to shop here during Tax-Free Weekend! Spend only $10 or more, and we’ll add another 10% discount from our normal prices to your entire purchase. On any and all items in the store, no exceptions!

Also, while you’re shopping this Tax-Free Weekend, ABSW at 65 James Street in Worcester is planning on making your experience even more fun with the Evening of Suspense event on Saturday, August 10, from 4PM to 7PM. Local suspense authors D.M. Roberts, James C. MacIntosh, and Joni Mayhan read, talk, and sign—and, of course, anything you buy at the event is also Tax-Free!

Also happening in August:

Check out our Sunday blogs to what we’re listening to.  Join us for a relaxing evening listening to good literature!
