I love bookstores because they provide a unique, inviting, and comfortable place for a community. Communities are often built around bookstores: around the theme, the events, the engagement and interaction that cannot help but take place at a bookstore.
At CommuniTea Books in Boerne we'll provide Author Events and Lectures. During my travels in Salt Lake City, New York City, and Santa Fe, I went to events meeting, and getting to know, authors such as: Neil Gaiman, George R. R. Martin, Lee Child, Dan Brown, Junot Diaz, Michael Chabon, Sam Shepherd (He is missed), Stephanie Myers ( I know), Lydia Davis, Cormac McCarthy, David Lipsky, Robert Mayer, Armistead Maupin, Bob Shacochis, and more, and we'll struggle to bring them read, and sign books. We'll also provide a place for local authors to read, and to sign their books.
We'll host writing workshops, classes (of all sorts: cooking, yoga, writing, etc.), book clubs, writing clubs, and TED Events.
We'll host live music, and open mics (music, reading, etc.)
CommuniTea Books, as well as all bookstores, are where people go to remember what it is to be human, together. There are no places like them in the world, and each are unique, and provide something that no other bookstore, or place, can.
