Our DELIVERY team has been laid low with COVID so we're sorry but we'll have to put it on hold for a couple of weeks. 

Our curbside hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday.

Join Edgar-Award winning author, Matthew J. Kirby, for a reading and signing of his new young adult novel, A Taste for Monsters.

It’s London 1888, and Jack the Ripper is terrorizing the people of the city. Evelyn, a young woman disfigured by her dangerous work in a matchstick factory, who has nowhere to go, does not know what to make of her new position as a maid to the Elephant Man in the London Hospital. Evelyn wants to be locked away from the world, like he is, shut in from the filth and dangers of the streets. But in Joseph Merrick, the Elephant Man, she finds a gentle kindred spirit who does not recoil from her and who understands her pain. When the murders begin, however, Joseph and Evelyn are haunted nightly by the ghosts of the Ripper’s dead, setting Evelyn on a path to facing her fears and uncovering humanity’s worst nightmares.
