Opening this Bookshop was a dream come true, and thanks to the incredible support of our community throughout the last four years we have not only survived, but thrived.
We will be located at 161 Park Road, just down the street from our friends at Playhouse on Park and across from Plan B. The West Hartford location will feature all the things you love about River Bend: a thoughtful selection of books for children and adults, gifts, games, stationery and toys, and our fabulous bookseller recommendations.
We hope to bring more of you as much fun and "book-citement" as we had recently at our Author Stage event and our special author visits from Isaac Fitzgerald at Hops on the Hill and Sebastian Junger at the CT Historical Society. If you'd like to pick up a signed copy from them, nab them before they are gone.
We're looking forward to our next multi-author event October 16 at the Bookshop with children's authors Josh Funk, Rajani LaRocca and Elly Swartz who will be reading and sharing from their books as well as signing copies for kids — of all ages. (Take a look at all their titles here: riverbendbookshop.com/Oct16Event.)
By the way! If you haven't had a chance to stop by the shop during the week, we're now open again seven days a week, adding Sunday hours 10-4, as we head into the fall and coming holiday seasons.
We are extremely excited and looking forward to meeting you in both of our homes. Stop in and share in our joy!
