This Week: Book Club and Live Booksigning!

Another great week ahead at Main Street Reads but first:


To all you moms out there, we love you! All weekend long we’re giving moms (and anyone shopping for mom) 10% off ANY purchase, plus free notebooks and book bucks (while supplies last!)

CONGRATS Teacher of the Week:

We’re proud that there are several teachers we’ll be announcing in the coming weeks for our Teacher of the Week program. This week we’re honoring Ms. Vicki Taylor from Rollings Middle School of the Arts, nominated by fellow teacher Ann Bennett!

Said Ann in her nomination, “Vicki is a master teacher who continues to work on finding new and exciting ways to present her content. Students and colleagues alike go to her for advice and book recommendations. RMSA would not be the same without her kind and humorous spirit!”

From all of us at Main Street Reads, THANK YOU for everything you do!
