Books of Wonder, New York City, is opening its second location, on the Upper West Side, tomorrow and starting a full events program with a teen panel featuring authors E. Lockhart, Bonnie Pipkin and Adam Silvera tomorrow at 6 p.m.
Books of Wonder signed a lease on the space in June and had hoped to open by early August but construction on the 2,600-square-foot store took longer than expected. A special grand opening event will be held in the fall, but for now, the store said in an e-mail to customers, "we just can't wait to invite you into this new space to 'kick the tires' and help us determine what works best for this new store. Of course, you can look forward to finding at 84th Street the same carefully curated collection of new, classic, and collectible books, as well as a selection of original artwork, prints, and signed posters that you can find at our 18th Street location."
The new Books of Wonder store is located at 217 W. 84th St., New York, N.Y. 10024; 212-989-1804.
