So many highlights to a great day! Discovering a new bookstore: Epic Books on Locke Street in Hamilton. Meeting a poet, Ariel Gordon, and buying a collection of hers: The Stowaway. (See her poem in the bottle.)
Chatting with young potential readers Enjoying a lovely warm reception from Ian Eliott at A Different Drummer Books. Sorry I didn’t take more photos of the fabulous book displays he had or the food but I did take a picture of his sales associate Evette in her t-shirt which explains a bit of his philosophy.
Thank you independent bookstores everywhere!
