Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh is fast-approaching their thirty-fifth birthday. They’ve been in a reminiscing kind of mood lately, and sent out the following via their newsletter:

Do you have any photos from QRB over the years: book signings, parties, storytimes, or anything else? Are there any QRB stories you would like to share? Please send them in to—we would love to see them!

So, if you’ve got something, please share!

Quail Ridge Books was founded by Nancy Olson in 1984. She ran the store for twenty-nine years. For a moving tribue to Nancy, click here (password: READ).

The current owner is Lisa Poole, who purchased the store in 2013 and relocated it to the North Hills Lassiter District, just a few doors down from Vivace and across Lassiter Mill Road from Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. This beautiful “new” space hosts readings and events, has two floors, and an incredible built-out children’s section.

They recently launched a podast, “Bookin’,” which you can listen to here.
