Little Shop of Stories, has accomplished amazing things for a five-year-old!! They are the winners of this year's esteemed Pannell Award (kind of like the Oscars for bookstores), have been an integral part in the success of the Decatur Book Festival (the 4th largest in the nation), and they have become a vital part of our local community. I just call them my second home. And why not? The store is CHARMING and the staff is like extended family (the good side)!!!
Anyhow, read more about their upcoming birthday celebrations (big party on July 29th) at the ABA (American Booksellers Association) website: Pannell Award-Winning Little Shop of Stories Turns Five!
