Share a quote from a book or poem that bares your bookstore’s soul.

“A place is not really a place without a bookstore.”

Gabrielle Zevin / The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Why was your bookstore founded/what role does it play in the community?

I opened my bookstore because I noticed a need in our community after our local Waldenbooks had shut down in 2008. Books and Crannies is now the only bookstore within an hour radius and serves as a staple in our community by encouraging people to read more.
