Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

2015-03-16 17.28.48Hooray for Spring—it’s official as of this weekend with the equinox!

We had an absolute blast this past weekend here at 65 James Street! There was a lot of fun with Joan Duris at the Books and Bowling Bonanza Saturday morning at the Auburn AMF Bowling Center—and then people started showing up here at the bookstore as early as 1:30 PM for our 5:00 event with Ferrett Steinmetz, which ended up being a full house.

And, of course, its still Women’s History Month – have you checked out our awesome Geek Girl themed collections from Mad Norwegian Press? We have several copies each of Chicks Dig Time Lords, Chicks Unravel Time, and Chicks Dig Gaming.

Of course, we’ve still got lots of events happening at ABSW! We’re listing some below, but watch our website and Facebook page for even more updates!

Without further ado, here’s what’s going on:


We have postponed our event “Together, A Message” with Diane Lewis to Sunday, April 12. More information will be posted on our website and Facebook page.

Sunday, March 22, 1:00-3:00 PM Insanity Tales authors Q&A, readings panel.
