Quail Ridge Books Grand Reopening

When: July 23-24 2016

SATURDAY, JULY 23 & SUNDAY, JULY 24

QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS GRAND REOPENING

It's been a roller-coaster year for Raleigh's most venerable independent bookshop. Quail Ridge Books closed its longtime Ridgewood Shopping Center location and moved into a temporary shop at North Hills with only a third of the space. During this period, the store's beloved founder, Nancy Olson, passed away, an emotional blow for longtime employees and customers alike. But at last, Quail Ridge fans and staff can finally take a breath of relief. It took several months to move the store's considerable inventory to its new, stable home at North Hills, where it has room to spread out in a nine-thousand-square-foot location at 4209-100 Lassiter Mill Road. The grand reopening festivities last all weekend and include prize drawings, craft stations, games, and author events. On Saturday, North Carolina children's book author Sheila Turnage (The Odds of Getting Even) will appear at 2 p.m. for a reading and signing; watch Quail Ridge's website and Facebook page as further activities are announced. —Zack Smith
