Local Literary Love

Local Literary Love

This week, we’re launching a new guideline for our author readings – for every three books from home you would like to get signed, you will now be asked to purchase at least one new book from Vroman’s. This adjustment got me thinking about buying local, and reasons to shop with us instead of with [...]

Miette’s Lemon Debutante Cake

Miette’s Lemon Debutante Cake

Today’s post comes from Dolores, the manager at our Gifts and Stationery store and a very talented baker! I have never written a blog but was encouraged to do so when my co-worker here at Vroman’s, Anne, saw a picture of the Lemon Debutante Cake I created for one of my staff members’ birthdays, and [...]

James’ America

Local Love

Vroman’s has gone crazy for local these days (I hope that you appreciated that I avoided the obvious pun there). We just launched our new Local Authors page on our website, planned the first event in our Local Authors series, and started stocking even more local merchandise. Among our new merchandise is an expanded Local [...]

Georgia

Georgia

I have a confession to make. I am a font nerd. Of course, it’s nothing compared to some of the real, hardcore font nerds out there, but I enjoy my typefaces perhaps a little more than the next person. I look forward to the monthly newsletter from MyFonts.com, and their What the Font tool has [...]

Summer Books

Summer Books

This post was originally written for a KCET series on things to do over the summer in Southern California (reading included!) Southern California is an amazing place to live. We have beaches, mountains, deserts, lakes, rivers, food and people from everywhere in the world, fresh produce, and a reasonable excuse to have a story on [...]
