Books Are Magic

2016 has been a doozy. Pick a topic and choose your poison—for most people I know, this year has been a wallop. David Bowie! The election! BookCourt. When we found out in early October that BookCourt was going to close at the end of the year, we were truly heartbroken. A neighborhood without an independent bookstore is a body without a heart. And so we’re building a new heart.

Cobble Hill's independent bookstore, owned by Emma and Michael Fusco-Straub.
