Book Cellar Fire
To our customers and friends,
The building that The Book Cellar is in suffered a catastrophic fire last Sunday night. Miraculously, all of the building's sixty or so residents made it out unharmed. The contents of the building and the bookstore were not as lucky. The building is completely closed while determinations are made regarding rebuilding and the clean up. All of The Book Cellar's books were lost to water damage. We are closed indefinitely and will keep you posted on future plans as soon we know what those are.
On a positive note The Book Cellar had signed on a huge event with Rick Riordan, author of the incredibly popular Percy Jackson series, who is on tour promoting the second book in his new series, The Kane Chronicles. We have decided to continue with this event, which will take place at the River Garden on Friday, May 6 during Gallery Walk. More information on this event to come in the next day or so.
My thanks to the incredible Book Cellar and Bartleby's staff, the bookselling community, firefighters, friends and strangers who have reached out to us in this sad time. Many thanks to Ana McDaniel, the Book Cellar's manager, who handled the bulk of the details post-fire, while I was out of the country on vacation.
Customers may continue to purchase books from our website and we will ship them from Bartleby's in Wilmington. eBooks may be purchased as well.
Thank you for your support during this time.
