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.

So glad you were here on the Island for the Grand Repening of this wonderful bookstore.

A delightful blog post with great photos.

So glad you bought a book. Now I will wait to read your review of it.
