Are you thankful for your community bookstore?

RJ Julia’s, an independent bookstore based in Madison, CT, is putting together a book of thoughts, poems, and (super)short stories about why people are thankful for their local independent bookstores. The Official Announcement is below. I’m not sure if you need to be a Connecticut resident to participate, but I just wanted to send this out there for everyone to see! Support your Local-Indy everyone!
