To celebrate the national event Independent Book Store Day, Annie's Book Stop of Worcester is shining a spotlight on our collection of vintage and antiquarian titles for children and adults, many of which are normally only available through online sales and private appointments.
From IBD's mission statement: "Independent bookstores are not just stores, they are community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent."
Join us for book talks and more as we extend our celebration of the national event Independent Book Store Day.
From IBD's mission statement: "In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. And they are at your service."
Join us for an afternoon signing and Q-and-A with Tammy Rebello and L.F. Blanchard, authors of ABANDONED ASYLUMS OF MASSACHUSETTS.
This book is a collection of photographs, history, and firsthand accounts, giving readers a glimpse at the roots of mental health. These vignettes are born of the personal stories of those who worked at these facilities, those who were institutionalized, and their families.
