a bookstore participating in
the local Where's Waldo events!
Generally summer time also means less literary events at bookstores. However, we have a few for you to check out. Last year many bookstores started a tradition of celebrating Waldo's birthday with week long "Where's Waldo" events. Starting this week you can look for these events at your bookstore! So whether you are donning rain boots or sun dresses, grab your gear and head out to support these fantastic independent bookstores!
