Gift shops and other general merchandise outlets can be great places to find books and often provide nice displays for local authors, like this one at Roseburg Book and Stationery in Roseburg, Oregon, near my home.
This store on Roseburg’s downtown Jackson Street has been around for over 100 years, and it has generally been more stationery than book, with a wide selection of office supplies, greeting cards, and gift items.
The place is taking on a new shine under new owner Jason Byers, and they’re now proudly displaying the work of local authors and hosting the occasional signing. This is good for the community and good for the authors to have more exposure. It’s not difficult to find me in the display. And they sell.
Thank you, Roseburg Book and Stationery.
