Merchants 2011

Bibliophoria is a collaboration among nonprofits organizations, businesses, artists, writers, and book lovers. Encourage a thriving town and cultural community by supporting local merchants, visiting locally-owned shops and restaurants, and sampling local flavors.

Bibliophoria’s Sebastopol iWalk on June 25, 2011, followed a route from the downtown Plaza to Iota Press at the south end of town to O’Reilly Media at the north, with stops at Many Rivers Books & Tea, Copperfield’s Books, other merchants along Main Street, and at the library for the Patrick Reagh fine book exhibit. These photos convey the spirit of a day in book-loving Sebastopol. Read a participant’s blog here. Scroll down for store information.
