Hello Book Friends!
You may have seen a video of the Old Town Books team floating around the internet last week as part of the #HarperCollinsLovesIndies campaign on Facebook Live. HarperCollins Publishers highlights one independent bookstore every Thursday for a behind-the-scenes look into the indie bookselling world, and we were honored to be featured on February 21st. Matt, Ally, and I had a blast talking shop. Ally described the genesis of the store, gave an overview of our charming Old Town neighborhood, showed off some of our fabulous new swag, and gave a brief history of our building. Did you know that Old Town Books is housed in the oldest commercial building in Old Town? Then, of course, we delved into our favorite topic: Books! Ally presented some of her favorites, past and present, Matt gave the inside scoop on a selection of nonfiction titles, and I featured some of our book club gems. Oh, and our resident greeter—Scout—even attempted a few tricks. (He may have stolen the show.) I’ll be honest, we were a little nervous to go on camera, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. If you’re interested in checking out the video, head over to the Old Town Books Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/oldtownbooksalx/
Happy reading (watching?), and hope to see you in the shop soon!
