Sentimental Serendipity

Last Saturday night Cover to Cover Books & Espresso had its Grand Re-Opening. Pictured here are, from left to right: author-Mike Nettleton, author-Carolyn Rose, and the evening's hostess and bookstore owner, Mel Sanders. (She's also a writer!) Smedley, the bookstore cat, is seated at the lower right.

After a fire caused the bookstore to close several months ago, this evening represented a true rising from the ashes. The new facility is larger, newer, and already has a wonderful bookstore atmosphere.
It was great to see some of the local writing community come together to support this awesome independent bookstore. The first Saturday of each month it hosts a Writers' Mixer where a featured guest (usually an author) speaks on a topic related to writing and/or publishing. In addition to that event there is also an evening of poetry reading once a month. This evening many authors shared good news regarding upcoming book publications from the "open mic." Mike Nettleton, and his wife, Carolyn Rose are not only authors but could work as stand-up comics as well! This night proved to be a night of good fun, good food, & a chance to make more good friends. Best Wishes Cover to Cover!
