This past week we were notified that the Book Warehouse franchise has been sold to a company with an agenda that does not include a focus on books. We have removed all books on the Writers Guild display and Cindy Freeman has graciously agreed to hold them for you. Ralph Tedesco is no longer with the company and his staff left with him.
We are looking at alternatives for the open mic program we sponsored with Book Warehouse and for book signings for our members. Many of the people who came were performing for the first time to an audience of over 50 people who attended the open mic monthly event.
We learned many things in presenting this opportunity to reach out into the community we serve. Putting those experiences into action is what counts now. When you take risks, you learn that there will be times when you succeed, and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.
