Today at 3:05 pm we locked the door of 168 Great Road, Acton, for the last time. We have had access to 30-A Hollis Street in Groton since yesterday morning, too late to accommodate the vast bulk of books and bookshelves that we needed to clear out of the Acton store. Those are in storage; we will be moving them to Groton over the next week.
We open for business in Groton on Tuesday July 9. But we'll be there beforehand, getting the store ready. Stop in and say hello.
This week at Second Hand Prose Books we are holding our annual Winter Sale. Buy one book and get the second book free. This is good for all books priced at $15 or under and there is no limit. So stop in and stock up on your winter reads!
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.
