Bookends Book Store

Bookends is a nationally known independent bookstore that hosts over a hundred author, sports, and celebrity events each year. I've had friends that have gone to this supercool bookstore meeting rock stars over the years. My friends Guy Alexander and Dave Diaz met Black Sabbath guitar legend Tony Iommi back in 2011 and my friend Jeff Sherban met Paul Stanley of Kiss at a signing in 2019.
