I'm at The Brewster Book Store today from 10-12pm, signing books with a few other local authors! We're celebrating these last few beautiful days of summer - and urge you to grab a new book to read on your last beach day!
The store is located at 2648 Main Street in Brewster - that's historic Route 6A to most of us.
I'll have copies of SON OF A MERMAID, BLOOD OF A MERMAID and MY KIND OF CRAZY available for purchase and personalization - perfect summer reads or perfect back-to-school gifts for that special kid (or mom!)
Owners John and Nancy Landon opened the Brewster Book Store in a Spring
blizzard in 1982, in one room, with 3,000 books and three customers, all family
members. In the past 26 years, the store has grown to 30,000 books, and now
includes the original front room for adult & children's fiction, the
spacious middle room for biography, non-fiction, young adult books, the very
special back room full of science and nature books for children, and last, but
not least, the tiny "womb" room with books for the littlest ones.
With its original owners & managers, plus its knowledgeable staff,
the book store has become a favorite summer and year-round destination, hosting
signings with fledgling authors as well as with such luminaries as Jane
Goodall, Tomie dePaola and Rosemary Wells, and pleasing families with the
appearances of popular storybook characters.
