Sidewalk Sales
 
Thank you to all in the community that stopped by the Friends book table at the Grosse Pointe Villagefest, September 6-7.  We sold over 600 books grossing $548.75.  Most important were all the people we spoke to about the Friends and our bookstore!!!  It was nice to see the Village "jumping" with people.
