30 Books by Florida Authors Affected by Hurricane Irma

So glad to see this list making the internet rounds. A reminder that by supporting your local writers you are helping not only to grow your literary community, but also sustain it. Many of these titles are still available at our Blue Bamboo location (you can pick them up at Saturday night's Functionally Literate! Handy huh?)

Hurricane Irma has devastated Florida. Help out the recovery effort by giving some attention to these 30 Florida authors.

08/23/2017

In December 2013 Bookmark It started our story with the simple goal of shining a spotlight on Central Florida's literary community. Over the past 3 1/2 years we've proudly done just that by:

* hosting over 400 events
* helping kickstart 3 literary book fairs
* introducing writers to over 8,000 students via school visits
* supported the literary efforts of 17 community partners
* plus, best of all, showcased the work of over 320 Florida authors.

As with any well-spun tale we had our share of drama and adventures, unexpected plot twists, and harrowing escapes…even a love story or two! But despite all our hard work and heartfelt intentions, running this little book business proved no match to the required fiscal and time constraints so (after much soul-searching and number-crunching) we’ve made the difficult decision to close.

In short, I guess the Bookmark It novel has turned out to be a short story.

We will be closing our locations at both The Lovely Collection (2906 Corrine Drive) and the Gallery at Avalon Island (37 S. Magnolia Ave) on September 6. Small curated selections at our other locations: Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts (1905 Kentucky Ave, WP), Swine and Sons (595 W. Fairbanks Ave, WP), and Florida & Co. (inside East End Market, 3201 Corrine Drive, Orl) will remain open through the end of the year. Plus we’ll still be popping up here and there with events already in the works with our community partners.

There's still a lot of work to be done and MOST of it is selling off inventory. So as they say in cheesy TV commercials…our loss is your gain! From now until September 1 all books at both The Lovely and The Gallery at Avalon Island will be 30% off. This includes hot new best sellers, children's picture books, Sunshine State reading list books, nonfiction and of course your favorite titles by Florida writers. Then on on September 1 we'll mark what's left over down 40% for a big Labor Day weekend blow out. This is a great time to stock up for gifts for the holidays or fill up those empty spaces on your personal bookshelves.

Plus a note to our authors: if your book is on consignment with us please look for a separate email with instructions on where/when to pick up your books AND we’ll have fixtures, shelving etc for sale too.

Hey All, My newly published novel, WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, much of which is set in Orlando and Winter Park, has just been reviewed in PopMatters. “When All Else Fails,” writes Susan Muaddi Darraj, “is politically complex, and its humor is razor-sharp.” This is the first review of the darkly comic novel -- which revolves around an Iraqi UCF student whose life is upended by 9/11 -- to appear in a publication of any kind. I hope you check it out and let me know what you think!
What locations do you have open??
