Past Signing – September 27, 2013 – Warwick, NY
About: Ye Olde Warwick Book Shoppe opened its doors on April 18, 2012 in the historic Village of Warwick, New York. It features a combination of new, used, and rare books, plus other fascinating collectables and curiosities. The shoppe is the dream come true for partners Thomas G. Roberts (the new, used, and rare half) and Joseph John Justin (the collectables and curiosities half). They have designed the store in the fashion of an old Victorian Book Shoppe complete from the front windows with brass lighting fixtures and green shades, to the dark stained book shelves and beamed ceilings. Don’t be surprised if you bump elbows with Charles Dickens or Harry Potter while browsing. They just happen to be two of our best customers. This is a place where you can actually see, feel, smell and savor every volume.
