Phoenix Books Essex's manager, Colleen Shipman, visited the Rutland Farmers' Market on Saturday, May 2nd, in anticipation of Phoenix Books opening our third store in Rutland later this summer. Since it was Independent Bookstore Day, visitors were asked to to complete  the following sentence: "I'm excited to have an indie bookstore in Rutland because ..." Customers at Phoenix Books locations in Essex and Burlington were asked to complete a similar sentence in honor of independent bookstore day.

On Monday, May 4th, acclaimed children's book author/illustrator Mike Curato spoke about his picture book Little Eliot, Big City to 482 preschool through second grade students at Essex Elementary School in Essex, Vermont!  Phoenix Books arranged the event in partnership with Carol Scrimgeour, Essex Elementary School's Library Media Specialist. Curato also stopped by Phoenix Books Essex to sign books, and signed copies of Little Eliot are now available at both Phoenix Books locations.

Local author Tammy Flanders Hetrick stopped by this week to sign copies of her newly released first novel Stella Rose. She even mentioned that half of the novel was written while enjoying our Essex cafe!

Phoenix Books Essex customers can treat themselves to these delectable and delightful spring cookies made by Treats by Teri.
