Here’s what’s happening in the world of indie bookstores this week:
Ferguson Books in Grand Forks, North Dakota, will host the grand opening for its second location, in Bismarck, on Saturday, November 10. “We have had a wonderful response from both downtown leaders and book customers from the Bismarck/Mandan area and, quite frankly, have been asked to locate here for many years,” said co-owner Dane Ferguson in an announcement on Facebook.
Architectural Digest featured a list of “The Most Beautiful Independent Store in Every State in America,” which included Oxford Exchange in Tampa, Florida; The Last Bookstore in Los Angeles; Wild Rumpus in Minneapolis; Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi; and Fact & Fiction in Missoula, Montana.
Hoodline named The Tattered Cover, BookBar, and City Stacks Books and Coffee as top bookstores in Denver, Colorado, as well as Harvard Book Store, the MIT Press Bookstore, and Porter Square Books as the best bookstores in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
