[UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED]
One of my favorite examples of customers supporting their local independent bookstore, and it doesn’t hurt that the customer is Tom Hanks! Fundraisers with unique events are a wonderful and fun way to celebrate reading, meet fellow reader, and support your local independent bookstore. Katie at Village Books asked to spread the word about this event, I think it’s sure to be a wonderful experience for everyone.
