We are very excited to begin bringing all the latest news from our independent bookstore straight to you on this blog. At Page After Page we are very fortunate to have such wonderful and loyal customers. This new blog, which will be updated weekly, is designed to keep you informed about upcoming titles that we'll be receiving, let you know about in-store events like author signings and storytime readings, and share any exciting bookworld news.
We just had a great Percy Jackson event this weekend. The children dressed up as their favorite characters from the Olympians Series. The costumes were incredible. The best-dressed was supposed to receive a special gift. However, the costumes were so well done that ALL the guests were given the special gift, a Signed Bookplate from the author of the Percy Jackon Series, Rick Riordan. We also had a train birthday party in the store Saturday morning. It was a lot of fun. The children had a great time, and we are hoping to have more birthday parties at Page After Page. Please call the store if you're interested in details.
