Congrats to Adrienne! Can't wait to see the new look!
Adrienne Cote, new owner of The Tribune (formerly Books N Things of Norway) will hold her grand re-opening today, Saturday March 3 @ 10 am. Adrienne is really ...looking forward to maintaining the traditions and appeal of the independently owned bookstore. She will continue to be ‘the hub’ for ticket sales for Oxford Hills events. Why not stop in and see the new paint, new carpeting, new display of books and gifts, and the new setup she has worked tirelessly on, and help support the new Norway downtown business owner?! Take a break from your screens, and buy a book! You’ll be glad you did! The Tribune, 430 Main Street, Norway ME.
Here are some of our favorite books by and about presidents from the past few decades.
Today was the big day for kids book announcements--2018 Newbery, Caldecott, Printz Awards and more. Check out the winners. I always look for MAINE connections o...n the winners list. This year one of the Sibert Honor Awards for most distinguished informational books for children is "Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Remix" by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and June Jo Lee, illustrated by Man One (Readers to Eaters series)--author Jacqueline Briggs Martin http://www.jacquelinebriggsmartin.com/index.html lives in Iowa now, but she grew up in Turner, Maine. Also, one of the members of the Newbery Committee was Cathy Potter, a librarian from the Falmouth School System. Leave a comment if I missed any other Maine connections. Congrats to all the winners--my TBR list just grew!
Books N Things is now closed, and will reopen March 3rd with a new owner. Thank you all for your years of support, and especially to all of you who were able to stop by today! It was a great time!
Thank you everyone who has stopped by with well-wishes. More food coming soon, swing by on your way home from work!
