Ann Carlson, owner of Harborwalk Books, Georgetown, S.C., has opened the Book Stall in Aiken, S.C., and will have a grand opening reception a week from this coming Friday, March 16, the Aiken Standard reported.
Carlson plans to run monthly theme events around such possibilities as cookbooks, poetry, a benefit with the SPCA and children. She will split her time between the two stores.
"Aiken's downtown is a wonderful place to shop, and there wasn't a bookstore downtown," Carlson told the paper. "I thought it needed one."
The Book Stall is located at 413 Hayne Ave., Aiken, S.C. 29801; 803-644-0604.
