The Bookworm Box

Bookworm Box       Sulphur Springs seems to be a happenin’ place these days!  The whole town was   abuzz last month with hometown hero Hannah Kirby landing a spot in the Top 8 of The Voice TV show.  Now, Sulphur Springs is back in the national news, thanks to local author Colleen Hoover.  Colleen’s remarkable career as a novelist has taken off in three short years.  Recently, Colleen decided she wanted to do something to “give back” to others.  She’s created The Bookworm Box      Authors are asked to donate signed books.  Readers subscribe monthly and receive two signed novels.  A team of volunteers packs and ships about 2,000 boxes of books.  After overhead costs, proceeds are given to charity.  In three months, $70,000 has been given to charitable causes!

This endeavor has grown so fast that more space (besides Colleen’s dining room!) was needed!  So on Saturday, June 6, The Bookworm Box will have its grand opening at

their new space on Main St., in downtown Sulphur Springs just off the square.  The re-

furbished space is lovely, and like every good bookstore, offers comfy chairs, coffee and

free wi-fi.  There are lots of books for sale, and the proceeds support charities.

MBC and I were pleased to donate books from the Bluebonnet Armadillo Adventure

Series to The Bookworm Box.  In keeping with the requirements, they are signed!

We attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony today and had our picture made in front of

the children’s book section with Colleen.

Hope you’ll come visit The Bookworm Box, whose motto is:  “Good Deeds, Great

Reads!”  As always, keep readin’ and writin’!!!!
