Booklovers’ Gourmet is celebrating 24 years in business!
Booklovers’ Gourmet opened their doors in March of 1995 and is celebrating 24 years in business! If you have yet to check it out, please come by and browse through our shelves of thousands of new and gently used books on all subjects for all ages and discover something new, or ask for a recommendation from the owner, Webster native Debra (Ostrokolowicz) Horan. With help from family, the store continues to fulfill her vision of being a gathering place where people can meet, enjoy good books, gourmet coffee and a homemade pastry, view local art or appreciate poetry and author readings in a cozy, inviting space.
There is a lot going on in this small spot! Step into this eventful location at 55 East Main Street and you will be greeted with wonderful smells, sights and sounds. Shelves are brimming with a wide array of the most current releases and best sellers along with some more obscure titles, and hand selected gifts, many locally-made, including pottery, garden and home decor, journals, jewelry, incense, candles, organic bath and body care products and more. The store has an extensive children’s section including Newbery and Caldecott Award winners as well as a wide array of educational puzzles and toys by “Melissa & Doug”.
If you are in a social mood, you can join one of our monthly book discussion groups, writers groups, attend one of our meet the author events, special workshops and artist receptions. “One of my main goals in running this type of community-based business is to offer cultural opportunities for everyone to participate in, to expand their horizons and just enjoy themselves by meeting others and experiencing things they may not otherwise get the chance to right here in Webster”, said Ms. Horan. For a list of regular events please visit www.bookloversgourmet.com or follow us on Facebook.
