Richmond, Virginia January 22, 2008 Kelly Justice, manager of the Fountain Bookstore since 2000 and independent bookseller since 1989, purchased Fountain Bookstore, Inc. from Louise "Boo" Smythe and Jim Smythe earlier this month. Justice and the Smythes are available for interviews about this transfer of a Richmond institution and its future. (Look folks, this is just far too big a story to put in a press release, so if you want to talk to me about why I feel so passionately about this business that I made the ultimate commitment, send me an email. -k)

Below is a listing for events sponsored by the Fountain Bookstore. Also listed are events which are not sponsored by us but for which we are the official bookseller.

For more information, please see our website or contact Kelly Justice for interview contacts, article content or images.
