Events Buzz Monday: Spring Is In Sight!

The time change from Standard Time to Daylight Savings Time, coupled with warmer temperatures, has definitely brightened our spirits here at our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside.

Please keep an eye on our website for when we start having extended spring hours.  In the meantime, our sidewalk sales carts have returned to their proper place… outside, on the sidewalk!  On the sidewalk sales carts, we are currently spotlighting markdowns on vintage paperbacks and hardcovers, cookbooks and do-it-yourself books, and older monthly-release romance and romantic suspense titles, with more genres to be added as the season progresses.

We had a blast at both of our events this past weekend. Jim Rousmaniere gave a great nature talk and signed copies of his title WATER CONNECTIONS, and Sharon Legasey entertained a happy crowd with her Saint Patrick’s Day picture book focusing on Lucky the dog and The Creative Pet Festival. Both titles are in stock and available for purchase.

Did you know we have a dedicated monthly newsletter for children’s books and family events?  Please feel free to sign up at the reception desk here at the store.

Here’s our schedule for upcoming events… As a reminder, the majority of our events here at ABSW are free and open to the public. Check out our page on SocialWeb.net!
