Bookstore Ribbon Cutting & Book Signing


As part of a series of events, Annie’s Book Stop, 1330


Union Ave. (across from KFC) in Laconia is jumping forward into spring with a full day of events on Tuesday, March 20th, starting at 1pm. Representatives of the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce will be on hand to welcome one of their newest members to the community with a ribbon cut- ting ceremony. Newest owner of the establishment, Simone Henderson, took the reins officially from Judith Normandin on the first of the year, who along with the original owner, Grace Normandin, had been the only two owners in 28 years. Simone, a self-proclaimed “bookworm”, has a library technical services background, degrees in small business management and creative writing, and has herself been a devoted customer at Annie’s. Following the ribbon cutting will be the first of two book signing events at 2 p.m.: the first featuring Brenda Polidoro, transcriber of the journals and author of “Day Book of Jeremiah Smith Jewett, Volume One”, a massive undertaking she took on for the Laconia Historical Society. At 3:30pm., allowing time for school kids to arrive, Barbara DeAngelis of the local Laconia Altrusa Club, will also be at Annie’s to sign copies of “Betty the Bookworm Visits the Library”. DeAngelis, a retired school teacher and local chil- dren’s author, volunteered her efforts to create this charming book for use as a fundraiser by the Altrusa group. Future booksignings are being scheduled along with


a 29th Anniversary Celebration for Annie’s Book Stop to be held Memorial Day Weekend.
