"This is not an entertainment bookstore," Nader said. "It's a bookstore for serious citizens, concerned citizens, curious citizens." He added that the store would sell some novels and children's books, "but it's not going to be a full-service bookstore like a Barnes & Noble."
The bookstore aims to host book signings, lectures and forums for people "interested in civic engagement [and] how we solve problems at the national, state and local levels."
With his partners the Law Works and the Office of the Community Lawyer, Nader is hosting a meeting tomorrow at 11 a.m. in Winsted with area residents to gauge support for the store and to discuss the store's "prospects for community events."
