From Catherine Weller
When we relocated the bookstore in 2012 we were excited about creating a new website with our inventory. While the website did launch, we never managed to get the inventory loaded on it. Flash forward to 2017: various Weller Book Works employees, along with the IndieCommerce staff of the American Booksellers Association, have been hard at work on a new web site. It's not quite ready for prime time yet but it will be within a week or two. 

Our new website will launch with the Staff Picks you love, our Best Weller's pick (at 20% off for two months), along with our events calendar, and book lists from the IndieNext program. All books will have buy buttons. Yes, it's true! You'll be able to buy books on our website. When it launches you'll see books from our warehouse and, very shortly after, our in-store new book inventory listed. Before the holidays, our used and rare books will be online for purchase as well. You'll also be able to purchase Kobo ebooks and ereaders through our us, and audiobooks via LibroFm. 

Obviously, I'm excited. We're delighted to see the website taking shape. It will be a work in progress for a while. But it's a work that will make buying books from us much easier. When completed, wellerbookworks.com's search will connect you with all of our new, used, and rare books, ebooks and audiobooks, and books from our warehouse in Oregon -- all of which can be ordered for home delivery! We hope you'll like it too, and visit it often. Stay tuned for the relaunch of the new wellerbookworks.com . (this link will still take you to the old website for now)

We welcome Rosie Maloney for a reading and signing of her co-authored memoir Girl Unbroken: A Sister's Harrowing Story of Survival from the Streets of Long Island to the Farms of Idaho. They were five kids with five different fathers and an alcoholic mother who left them to fend for themselves. Rosie, the youngest, is fawned over and shielded by her older sister, Regina. But when Regina discloses the truth about their abusive mother to the authorities, the siblings are separated. And as Rosie discovers after Cookie kidnaps her from foster care, the one thing worse than being abandoned by her mother is living in Cookie's presence.
