New & Noteworthy

Thank You

Amazing that another new year has begun and that 2017 is behind us; this transition provides me with a wonderful opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to making 2017 an inspired year for Appletree Books.

To all our customers, thank you, thank you for shopping local last year and contributing to the vitality of the Cedar-Fairmount neighborhood, especially amidst construction challenges.  To our staff (Jane, Lorie, Michael, Julia, Kristina, Sharlene, Kelly, Annie, and Ed), thank you for providing great customer service amidst fielding all sorts of questions with a smile, professionalism and occasional humor.  To all our artist and window designers listed below, thank you, thank you for your creativity and efforts in making our store unique and inviting while providing our customers and staff with colorful and intriguing windows and walls.  Hopefully, no one has been overlooked and our apologies if someone has been inadvertently omitted.

So, here goes (big round applause for all these individuals and organizations!):  artists: Alex Shaland, Jeremy Tugeau, Miranda and Clare Borden, Jim McNamara and Megan McNamara, Madelaine Mavec, Cathy Miller, Karin Dijkstra, the watercolor students of Sarah Knoblauch, Gene Epstein, Hazel Brown and Betsi Morris; windows: art students of Sherri Fried at Roxboro Elementary School, Seeds of Literacy, Jeremy Tugeau (artist), Kids Book Bank, Hopewell Art Therapy program, Achievement Centers, Caring Cubs, Dunham Tavern Museum, Heights Community Congress Home and Garden Tour, Gene Epstein (artist) and all the participating NaNoWriMo window writers.  Thank you for all the talents you brought to and shared with Appletree Books!

Looking forward to 2018 and another year (our 43rd!) of bringing great books and a creative shopping experience to our community,
