Back in the day, which is really not that long ago, major bookstores like Barnes and Noble were a key destination for coffee-lovers. But with the downturn of these mega-venues via online retailers, the indie bookstore experience, which was recently on the endangered retail list in many cities, is making a huge comeback.
Instead of sipping on cookie-cutter coffee, your attendees can go down the street to a artfully decorated bookstore where they can sample works from local writers, early editions and rare titles. Want to get really creative? Try holding an informal breakout session there too!
