"Books? They're over on the pool table."

This coming Saturday we may see more of our regular customers outside the store than in it. That's because we will be taking a large portion of our religion section to display at the "Ministry Summit" of the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina, which is being held at Asheville's First Baptist Church (ecumenism in action!). This is a somewhat revamped version of an event that's held every year, and represents one of our largest out-of-store projects. Undoubtedly we'll see lots of familiar faces; Episcopalians are great book buyers. The usual location for our display is a room filled with pool tables and drink machines near the gym; a bit incongruous, perhaps, but it seems to work.

So if you go to the Ministry Summit on Saturday, be sure to stop by our book display. And, if you don't, why not go by Accent on Books and say an encouraging word to -- and perhaps buy a book or two from -- whichever one of us is holding down the fort there.
