I hope I don’t come off like your grandmother after her vacation to the Grand Canyon….but the letter writing event we had with Laura Brown on Saturday was so much fun! We had such a good time preparing all of the food and getting the space ready to have so many guests in our store. With the growing popularity of the letter writing days, we are making sure to have enough seating and surfaces available for people to comfortably write and munch. Laura Brown spoke to the crowd about her life growing up in Asia, moving to the US, and discussed some ideas around writing. Thanks to Laura for coming in to help us host our event this month, we can’t wait to see everyone again next month! (or sooner)
Don’t miss our new chapbook displays on the second floor of 112th street. We have been working with small presses to begin representing their publications in the store. So far, we’ve made some good progress! We have a bunch of new chapbooks available. I just can’t get over how beautiful they are.
