Next Chapter Bookshop is now permanently closed. Some of our upcoming in-store author events may be rescheduled to occur at: Books & Company, [and] Boswell Books. Offsite partnership events occurring at Sanford Restaurant, Bacchus Restaurant and The Riverside Theater will take place as scheduled as of this message.
