After 26 Years, Virginia Kress is Retiring and the Store is Closing
To My Valued Friends and Customers
It is with both sadness and excitement that as of Saturday, August 31 I am formally announcing my retirement and the closing of The Readers Loft.
These past 26 years have brought so much joy I don’t even know how to properly express it. Not just the books themselves but all the people that have come into my life as a result; customers, authors and co-workers alike. My goal from the beginning was to create a haven from the frantic world we all find ourselves living in. I hope you have found over the years that The Reader’s Loft was a place of refuge and peace for you. From our book clubs to writing circles to poetry readings I hope you have also found nourishment for your mind and soul. I will miss you all!
On a more positive note, Amy will be opening a new bookstore created in her own vision on
Washington Street in downtown Green Bay. While her store Lion’s Mouth will offer the same
basic services as our current store, the setting will be a bit more contemporary. We hope you
will all continue your patronage of our local independent bookstore.
Thank you for your support over the years.
All the best,
The Woman in the Window (Pre-Recorded Audio Player)
January 2018 Indie Next List
“The Woman in the Window is being touted as one of the hottest releases of early 2018, and with excellent reason. A modern take on Hitchcock's Rear Window, with many nods to classic noir film, A.J. Finn's debut novel is told through the eyes of a narrator trapped inside her beautiful house by a severe case of agoraphobia and separated from her estranged husband and young daughter. She copes with her condition by spying on her neighbors and living vicariously through their drama, until the night she witnesses what appears to be a murder and finds herself swept up in its wake. Once this story gets rolling, it will bowl you over. Fans of psychological thrillers should take note of this banger of a tale!”
