"I must sound like a broken record, however I have to reiterate how important these events are to me. I walk away with at LEAST 1 good idea from every single event. It reconfirms what I am doing, and assures me I have fellow book store owners who genuinely care about me and what they do. I love feeling part of a 'family' and each event makes me a smarter, wiser and happy book seller!!!" - Donna Fell, Sparta Books, Sparta, NJ 

 The All About Events Retreat was so informative and such a great experience. I am so thankful to you for coordinating these great opportunities. I can't wait to put what I learned into action! - Kate Saporito, [words] Bookstore, Maplewood, NJ

I’m sure, logistically, it was a challenge. We really appreciate your efforts." - Donna McFadden, Wellington Square Bookshop, Exton, PA
