Bunch of Grapes: Welcome Back!
The Bunch of Grapes bookstore in Vineyard Haven closed early last summer due to a fire that gutted the second floor of the store and a next-door restaurant.
I’m happy to report that the bookstore, under new ownership, has reopened less than a year later.
The two story location now has a restructured downstairs with a more open layout and dark wood finish. Plus, chairs to sit and read. Or just sit.
I was lucky enough to be in the neighborhood on their grand reopening day.
I picked up a copy of Ghosts, by César Aira.
