Store Anniversary Celebration

On Saturday, November 30th, Battenkill Books will celebrate its 10th anniversary under the current ownership. Connie Brooks and Chris Callahan purchased the store in 2009 from then-owners Margaret Waterson and Catherine Crank. The day is also nationally recognized as Small Business Saturday. Battenkill Books will celebrate with special sales and complimentary beverages and events throughout the day.

The events that day will include a visit from author and illustrator Will Moses, who will sign books and offer cards, calendars, and puzzles for sale from 12 noon to 2 pm. At 7 pm, we will present the Story Circle of the Capital District's Tellabration event with a host of local storytellers. Storytellers for this event will include: Siri Allison, David Bayne, Kelly Bird, Jack Boggan, Kate Dudding, Christie Keegan, Kelvin Keraga, Jay Kerr, and Margaret Waterson.

Also as part of this special day, Battenkill Books will debut its newest feature: the Wit & Whimsy vending machine. It is a one-of-a-kind vending machine that will surprise and delight, filled with unusual candy, gifts, games, and most-unusual finds!

Battenkill Books is located at 15 East Main Street in Cambridge, NY. To reach the store, call 518-677-2515 or email
