What you'll do

During this experience we will travel to 2 independent bookstores in Manhattan where I will explain the importance of buying from and supporting independent bookstores and the history of Book Row. During this time you will be free to peruse the store and buy anything you may be interested in. A great time to get that new read or even a special bookish souvenir.
