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 books@quailridgebooks.com—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.
