Hooray for independent bookstores. Books on the Square is celebrating 20 years in business, and given the economic pressures of the past few decades that’s really saying something. They must be doing something right. Here’s what’s on tap for the anniversary celebration.
First, 20% off everything in the store Saturday and Sunday (June 16 and 17) with 10% of the weekend sales being donated to Reach Out and Read RI, a local non-profit that inspires children to read. Special events are planned for Saturday.
2pm — Laughs & Illusions: The Charismatic Comedy Magic of Matt Roberts. Matt Roberts presents a different, funny and astonishing family show that all ages will be talking about long after the amazing finale! Learn more about Matt at www.RImagic.com
3pm to 5pm — Kids Activities: Raffles, games, design-a-bookmark, stories, cupcakes!
6pm to 8pm — Adult Activities: Raffles, Trivia Contests, and summer reading suggestions.
