BOOK PASSAGE BULLETIN: MARCH 17

Dear Book Passage Customers,

Today, under the emergency orders of the City of San Francisco and the County of Marin we’ve closed our stores in Corte Madera and the S.F. Ferry Building for the next three weeks. This is a difficult moment for us. But we know this closure is for the health and well-being of our community, our authors, and our staff, as we seek to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

We have a robust late-spring and summer array of author events awaiting you when we are finally able to re-open our stores.

As we are asked to remain in our homes during the next three weeks, we can’t help but encourage you to read! And read often. Books transport us, feed our imagination, teach us and enthrall.

There is no better antidote to these times than a novel, a work of compelling non-fiction, a biography or memoir that you may not have had the time to read before. Books call to us, and now we can take to our couches and armchairs and dig in.

Or perhaps a cookbook or two, as you stay at home and finally have time to be inventive and show off to your family a new dish or two.

A book of poetry can start and finish the day with exactly what you need to fuel thought and provide inspiration.

And as the schools remain closed, what better way to entertain young ones than to offer the beautiful picture books of our time…they have never been better! Clever, entrancing, full of thought with illustrations that will inspire you to get the art supplies out and get to work with family on your own creations. And for the teens in your home there is the bold world of young adult fiction that stimulates and engrosses.

We plan to be offering regular updates on our website with suggested reading for all of you.

And bookpassage.com does not slumber! We will continue to fill your orders as your visit us online.

Libro.fm is at the ready to fulfill all your audio needs. A good audio book while you stroll is a great pleasure.

We can hardly wait to be back together again. Watch for our e-blasts and visit our website for regular updates and announcement of when we will re-open.

In health and with best wishes
Elaine
