Help A Novel Idea on Passyunk

46711504_1585153304423282_r.jpegDue to COVID-19, we were forced to close the bookstore temporarily. As a small brick and mortar business, we are obviously scared by this. We are trying our best to continue to offer options for our community, friends, and family to support us, but we're worried we won't be able to pay rent on the store, our home, and other necessary living and work expenses.

We can't thank everyone who has donated so far enough for your support! We spoke to a state senator the other day and according to him, it's likely non-essential businesses will not be able to open fully for normal operations until fall. To be honest, we don't think we will survive if we cannot open before then. We know that many people are experiencing financial hardships right now, but if you can donate, know that it is helping to keep open your favorite local indie bookstore and event space.

Any little bit helps! 

Thank you for your support!

Stay safe and sane and read a lot of books.

Alex & Christina
