New independent bookstore opens in Brighton part of ‘resurgence’

 

 

Two Brighton kindergarten teachers did their research and decided it would be the perfect time to open a bookstore in downtown Brighton.

2 Dandelions Bookshop is Brighton’s only independent bookstore. It is open at 209 W. Main Street, Suite 105, and the owners are celebrating a grand opening Friday through Sunday.

Co-owners Jeanne Blazo and Jeri Kay Thomas say the market is right for opening an independent bookstore, even though larger brick-and-mortar retailers have struggled to compete with online shopping and e-readers.

NOVEMBER

How to Write a Book for Your Business in 30 Days

November 21, 2019

Participate in National Novel Writing Month by writing a business book in 30 days. Book coach Vickie Gould will teach you how in this 6:30-8 p.m. workshop! Time is the scapegoat many use as the reason why they can’t write their book. The truth is that lack of clarity is what keeps most from finishing. Once you know exactly what topic is the best for your business, it becomes simple to map out how to write it. You will leave with a clear understanding of the best topic to pick for your business book — one that will grow your business for years to come. You will create your own personalized calendar to write your book in 30 days and learn a simple structure for the contents of your book. Tickets are $35.
