This Sunday, December 9th at 3 pm, Second Hand Prose Books is pleased to offer another of our Sunday Salons. We will be featuring My Dear Girl: The Art of Florence Hosmer, by award-winning local poet Helen Marie Casey. Ms. Casey will speak on Ms. Hosmer's life in Sudbury, MA and will discuss the process of writing biography.

All books in the store (with the exception of consignment / antiquarian volumes) will be an additional 20% off the normal purchase price, from the time of the Sunday Salon through Friday December 14. 10% of the store's profit during this time will be donated to the Hosmer House.

Thank You To My Customers and Staff

22 November 2012, 23:35

On this Thanksgiving Day there is so much to be thankful for. We had a great meal with convivial people and my pies turned out perfectly. I’m also reflecting on how fortunate I’ve been to own a used bookstore for more than five years now. This is thanks to my wonderful customers and to great employees.

Although the store has many fine books, thanks to the contri­bu­tions from the people of Acton, MA and the surrounding area, I always say my best stories come from my customers. I love talking with you about your vacation plans and recipe ideas and why you like certain books more than others. Its been so fun watching your kids grow — some are even driving themselves to the store now, others are in college! And thank you for sharing with me memories from your past and hopes for your future. I feel blessed indeed to know each and every one of you.

I also have to give a shout out to my dream team of employees. Without them I couldn’t be doing all the behind-the-scene things I need to do to operate the business on my days “off.”

Wishing you and your loved ones a happy Thanksgiving.
