The Team at The Open Book
 
We are honored to be nominated alongside incredible role model bookshops for the 2020 Pannell Award.  The award honors bookstores that "enhance their communities by bringing exceptional creativity to foster a love of reading and books in children and young adults." Fingers crossed for the final results but in the meantime thank you to the Women's National Book Association and Penguin Young Readers. We are grateful and thrilled!
