Sideways in Sarasota … back on Main Street!

You all know how much I appreciated and miss (even still) our wonderful Sarasota News & Books (if you missed my column lamenting its departure, you can read it here at “Life Without Books is Death“. I miss SN&B not just as a bookstore, but as a community meeting place, and well, just a place where I felt super comfortable, surrounded by the sounds of newspaper pages rustling, being flipped and folded over, espresso steaming, people murmuring. I also loved SN&B because it was the first bookstore ever to have a book of mine on its shelves, and was also the first place I ever gave a reading and book talk.

Now, Media on Main has sprung up at the same spot and once again my books are on the bookshelves of a downtown Sarasota shop (it’s long been available at the ever-gracious Circle Books on St. Armands Circle, as well). sideways-in-bookstore-2

Media on Main is looking like it might hit — sure was busy when I swung by there last week to snap photos of my book — and I very much appreciate the prominent, facing out, exposure they gave me.

If you haven’t stopped by Media on Main, give it a chance … I’m thinking of taking my laptop there and trying it (the scene) out on a slow afternoon.

    You just spoke back to the king of class so just go away and practice your tuba and dictate some more wasted paperwork that no one will ever look at…. Glad a bookstore is back at that wonderful spot MC and your book is displayed where it should be….Got to go and bail out Kramer…,Jerry
