Something for All Each Day!

We hope you’re all staying cool during these humid dog days of summer. Suggestion: An iced drink on the porch with a fan gently rustling the pages of your book… Feel the breeze?

Here’s what’s coming up this week at Main Street Reads, including our Wednesday morning Stories on the Square (properly social distanced with the clever use of hoola-hoops!) and our first in-store book signing since March! Read on for a full week of fun ahead:
