Happy Yule and Merry Christmas to all our friends who celebrate! We’ve had a lot of great events these past few weeks, so thank you to everyone who came our 65 James Street bookstore that’s “bigger on the inside” for Cecilia Tan’s What’s Hot in Erotic Fiction?, John Silva’s History of the American Tavern, the return of Michael Cooper with his book Foxes in the Vineyard, and this past weekend’s Holiday Caroling with Sam & Fran & Friends. It was lovely spending time with our guests and attendees!
