Books of Wonder - Help!

Today for KBWT I am featuring Books of Wonder, the wonderful children's book store in New York City.  Mid-Atlantic book lovers have been able to meet so many of their favorite authors because of this great store.  Visitors to the Big Apple have made a stop at this store a MUST. 

Last year, Books of Wonder lost the tenant who helped pay the bookstore's bills and now, Books of Wonder may close.  NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

There is a movement afoot to save Books of Wonder - more about that later.

For now, delve into the virtual shelves of this treasure of a store.   Look at the photos of authors and events.  Gaze with wonder at the framed artwork.  Check out upcoming events.  Look at the vintage titles, the World of Oz collection and more, more, more.

OK, now about saving the store!  Books of Wonder has started a fundraiser on Indiegogo to raise enough money to save the store.  Donate as little as $10 and receive something from Books of Wonder.  For $25, you receive a Robert Sabuda pop-up notecard!!!  The more you give the more amazing the thank you gifts become.  Awesome. 

Just click here to find out how you can keep this national treasure open and available to everyone who visits NYC.  Someday, that will be YOU!

  1. I've never been, but it sounds like such an amazing place... So sad to hear of its troubles (as well as the troubles of the local book store in general)...
