As many of you know, Book Show has always shared the space with another business (Madame Pamita’s Parlour of Wonders), making rent affordable for us. Come July 2019, Madame Pamita will be moving on, leaving the space and giving us the opportunity to expand into the rest of the store doubling the area we have now! Book Show will no longer be limited to evening happenings; we’ll have space available any time of the day, any day of the week, and so many other possibilities!
With this exciting new development comes the difficult financial burden of taking on more than double our rent and expenses. While we remain positive about the future of Book Show, we’re not able to do this without your help. We need the support of our friends.
If you love the shop, the programming and value what Book Show does, please consider donating.
Here are the essential and immediate expansion needs for which Book Show would use the funds:
--To cover the additional rent increase for July and August, notoriously slow summer months, while we work filling up our programming schedule.
-- A cooling solution for the space. Some kind of air conditioning!!!
--25 additional folding chairs
--Additional folding tables of varied sizes
--Additional lighting for performances and readings (spotlight, ambient lighting)
--A real podium for readings
--Miscellaneous furniture & fixtures (bookshelves, displays, room dividers, chairs, curtains, etc)
Thank you for being a part of Book Show’s metamorphosis!
