How is it already another decade?
2020 is a big year for Spellbinder Books: we'll be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the store's opening, back in 1970. And later in the year, November 1st marks the 20th anniversary of when I finalized my purchase of the store from the Miloviches. Sometimes it feels like a long, long road, and sometimes it seems as though it was just yesterday.
Either way, it's rare for an independent bookstore, or any business for that matter, to be around long enough to celebrate a 50th. Our doing so, in large part, is due to the wonderful community of the Eastern Sierra, including all the towns here on the East Side, and all the folks who visit us regularly from other parts of the country and even world. The other big part? The amazing humans known as 'booksellers' that I've had the privilege of working with over the years.
We'll be marking this special year with special parties, events, contests and offers that we'll be announcing via e-newsletter and facebook, and we hope you can celebrate with us!
