I have always supported local businesses, like bookstores, as they are rooted in the community, and their profits go back into other local businesses. On e of these in A Novel Idea On Passyunk (https://anovelideaphilly.com/), a nice local bookstore at 1726 East Passyunk in South Philadelphia. There, local authors and poets read their works, and local publishers sell their books.
On Monday, August 6-a few days after my birthday!-I will be a featured reader at A Novel Idea. I look forward to seeing you there. I’ll keep you posted about details as I get closer to the event.thanks for all your support.
