Grand Opening of Books On B!

It is my privilege and joy to invite you to the ribbon cutting for our new independent bookstore in Downtown Hayward on Friday, September 29, starting at 4 PM.

Come rain or shine, we will be gathering in front of the shop to celebrate with live local music and a poem to commemorate the occasion by Hayward Poet Laureate Bruce Roberts. By 4:30 there will be presentations and speeches by Assemblyman Bill Quirk and Mayor Halliday. Ribbon cutting by 5 PM, and then you are welcome to an open house for Books On B. There will be Fink's cake and bubbly drinks until 7 PM.

My first day of business will be on Saturday September 30, from 9 AM to 1 PM. The sales counter will be closed during the open house.

I am so thankful for all the generosity from this community. I look forward to starting the next chapter of our literary lives together.

Deliriously happy,
