As February ends and March begins this week, we’re slowly starting our transition into spring—hooray! We at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester are certainly love more days where we can sit in the sun (or under a tree or umbrella) with a good story…or six.
Also coming with March is the release of the new A Wrinkle in Time movie—and we’re very excited about that. We have a display up front of the novel and the graphic novel to celebrate!
As we bid goodbye to February, we also send a great big “Thank you!” with it to all our friends who came out to our events. Just last week we had an overwhelming response to our February vacation drop-in crafts, storytimes, and sing-a-longs! It was so good to see you all.
Whether you’re already planning for March or just starting to look for things to do, keep our 65 James Street store in mind because we’ve got a lot going on in the next few weeks—starting with THIS WEEK!
