New bookstore called 'Pages' is opening this week
Opening Tuesday, December 8, is Pages, a new bookstore devoted to art and poetry-style books. I'm happy to say that it is not in competition with the Bookstore in the Grove because the Bookstore in the Grove owns Pages. It is a second store for them, which is a pop-up for a couple of months, they hope to be open through the Coconut Grove Arts Festival weekend, which is mid-February. There had been talk for a year or more of the main Bookstore in the Grove moving to the location and then gossip about Books & Books taking over, so it's nice to see that our own Bookstore has the space.
I stopped by early Saturday morning to have a look and on Saturday morning, it was just one big abandoned space, all cement; so to open by Tuesday, they have a long couple of days ahead of them.
Tuesday's event is a preview party from 6 to 10 pm. There will be champagne, hors d'oeuvres and live Jazz. The next day, they will open for regular daily operation at 10 am.
Please RSVP for the opening to RSVP@thebookstore.com
The location of the new store is 2992 McFarlane Road, a couple of doors east of Harry's Pizzeria.
