Galaxy Bookstore Reopening in Refurbished Store
HARDWICK – The Galaxy Bookstore will celebrate its opening at its refurbished space on Saturday, Jan. 7, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The shop suffered severe water damage from an upstairs fire last summer. Since then, the Galaxy Bookstore operated from the homes of co-owners Andrea Jones and Sandy Scott, moved to a shared work space above Front Seat Coffee, and then set up shop at a desk in the brand-new Flower Basket on Hardwick’s South Main Street at the site of the former Buffalo Mountain Co-op.
This opening day will feature Vermont writers, local food, and door prizes. Children’s writer Natalie Kinsey-Warnock and novelist Jeffrey Lent will attend from 10 a.m. to noon. Additional guests include Geoff Hewitt, Jody Gladding, Sean Prentiss, Brett Stanciu, and Christine McDowell.
Local foods include donations from The Genny, The Magic Spoon, Buffalo Mountain Market, Cabot Cheese and Front Seat Coffee. Updated details are on the Galaxy’s website at galaxybookshop.indielite.org/.
