Very exciting news on the Nowhere Bookshop front…
And she’s amazing.
Her name is Elizabeth Jordan and she’s been the CEO of BookPeople in Austin (one of my favorite bookstores of all time) for years but she wanted to be closer to her family in San Antonio and we’re in San Antonio so this works out perfectly. Especially because I am so overwhelmed and she is so amazing and I am melting with relief that she’s going Nowhere.
Also, I am constantly sending her texts of my ideas, like how we should have live chickens in the store (but with diapers, obvs) and she sends me back texts saying that she is not changing chicken diapers and reminding me of health codes and Victor is very happy that finally there is another grown-up involved who can talk me down off the ledge and also knows how to sell books and host amazing events.
I’m pretty sure this will be us very soon:
Except slightly less violent and also possibly drunk and maybe with chickens. (But probably not chickens unless I can bribe the health inspector which Elizabeth says I totally can’t do.)
Welcome to Nowhere, Elizabeth.
