Located in Pasadena, Vroman’s Bookstores has been in business since 1894! How’s that for a long, honored literary tradition? We here at SVP have known about them for a long time. As you may or may not remember, Kris Vreeland of Vroman’s was chosen as SVP’s 2007 Bookseller of the Year.
Publisher’s Weekly has named Vroman’s Bookstore 2008 Bookseller of the Year (following our example, no doubt!)
And another reason we like Vroman’s is they engage in karmic marketing with their Vroman’s Gives Back Program. And you know what suckers we here at SVP are for karmic marketing.
They also offer classes, free Wi-Fi, a twice weekly story time, and a monthly Graphic Novel reading group. They also host scads of author events, most recently Jimmy Carter. How’s that for status?
So if you find yourself in Southern California, do yourself a favor and check them out.
