Novelist Michelle Berry to Open Indie Bookstore

Michelle Berry

Another author is entering the bookstore business. Canadian novelist Michelle Berry, who has written nine books, plans to open Hunter Street Books in Peterborough, Ont., in a newly renovated space at 164 Hunter St. W. The Examiner reported that Berry is "not daunted by the idea of opening a bookstore while other bookstores are closing."

"I could tell you a million stories about how bookstores are coming back," she said, noting in particular American novelists/booksellers Ann Patchett, Judy Blume and Louise Erdrich. She added that customers want personal attention from a staff that can recommend good books, and that is what she plans to offer.
