Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

08092015 - Snow PrincessCOVERWelcome to the first week of August from Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester, the little “bigger on the inside” bookstore at 65 James Street!

These are the last few weeks of summer. Have you gotten everything you need on your summer reading lists? Do you have any last-minute needs? Stop in and see if we can help you—we can do special order and delivery!

We apologize for the delay in blog, but we’ve had a pretty busy convention schedule. Don’t worry, though—there’s still plenty happening you should know about.

Especially this week!

We are extra-excited to be hosting artist and author Ruth Sanderson at our store THIS SUNDAY, August 9, from 2PM-4PM. Ruth Sanderson has been a professional illustrator since 1975 and has published over 80 children’s books. She’s also created numerous book covers, fantasy art, collector’s plates, animation concept art, and product design. Some of her best known, recent titles are The Twelve Dancing Princesses, Mother Goose and Friends, Rose Red & Snow White, and A Castle Full of Cats. Ruth will share her work, give an art demo, and field questions. Costumes welcomed, and there will be prizes for the best-looking princesses! There will also be princess grab-bags and treats.

Now, onto what to expect for August events! As always, keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.
