Independent Bookstore Reopens


In this day of fierce competition among bookstores and closing of some independent stores, it is heartening to see an independent bookstore reopen. The Curious Cup of Carpinteria, once downtown and then merged with a toy story, has reopened it’s doors in a new Carpinteria, CA. location. A small space near The Market Place eatery at 3817 l/2 Santa Claus Lane, it is only open Thursday to Saturday from 10AM to 6PM and on Sunday from 10AM to 5 PM.

I visited Kiona’s new space last weekend and delivered some of my children’s books. I’ll be doing an event there on Saturday, June 6. Phone Kiona at 404-396-7008 for more information.

About berylreichenberg

I am a storyteller. Writing and illustrating books for children, I have published over 35 titles. Three of my books, "Ants on a Log", "Camouflage", and "The Mysterious Case of the Missing Birthday Cake" have been published by a traditional publisher, Oak Tree Press. These are available from Oak Tree and Amazon as well as other outlets. The others are published by and can be seen on their website. Some of my stories are in prose and some in verse. All are designed for small children and young school children. My fiction stories are designed to delight these children and help them learn about themselves and the world around them. I also have a number of nonfiction books about animals, the natural world, and other cultures. I illustrate my stories with drawings and photographs. I hold a Master's Degree from UCLA and have taught school in California. I hope that young children and their adult companions will enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
