As noted previously, author Gwen Suesse will be here at Accent on Books this evening. And that's just the curtain-raiser for what promises to be a busy weekend here at the store.
Saturday is the first annual Take Your Child to A Bookstore Day. The brainchild of New Jersey native Jenny Milchman, this is an event dedicated to introducing youngsters to the magic and riches of reading. Here at Accent on Books, beginning at 11:00 AM, we will have a story hour featuring our own Byron Ballard, with gifts and goodies for all young attendees. So take some time out from your busy holiday activities to relax and share the wonders of books with the next generation of readers.
And then Sunday is The Big Day: our ** 27th Anniversary (!) Accent on Books Birthday Party & Open House ** . This event -- always held on the first Sunday in December -- has become an indispensable holiday event for innumerable booklovers in Western North Carolina, and with good reason, since it features:
-- Live Music
-- Delicious Food
-- And, most importantly, ** 15% Off All In-Stock Books **
The festivities will take place from 1:00 to 5:00 this coming Sunday, December 5, and everyone who is anyone will be here, including, we hope, you!
Saturday: Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day, with story hour at 11:00 AM.
