While working on next month's Connecticut Children's Literature Calendar, I noticed that the website for Jack and Allie's, A Children's Bookstore in Vernon is gone. What do you suppose that means, Gail? I thought.
I did a little hunting, and, as I suspected, the store has closed. The lease was up at the end of May, and the owner is looking for another site.
In addition to selling books, Jack and Allie's hosted events such as birthday parties, baby showers, fundraisers, and reading camps.
This is the second Connecticut bookstore to close this summer.
