133 W. Main St., Gaylord, MI | 989-732-8899 | www.SaturnBooksellers.com  
 Dear --FNAME--​,

After almost 19 years in our current space, the bookstore is moving this month - 33 steps to the east.  Our new home will be 127 W. Main St. (on the ground floor of the Clock Tower building, which used to be the offices of 5/3 Bank).  We'll still have a back door.  It will even still open onto the same parking lot! We'll also have a front door onto Main St. and a door into the common space of the building, where there is to be, our landlord assures me, a coffee shop/bakery/wine bar or the like in the near future.

We're getting excited as it's starting to look like a retail space, and we  thought you'd like a sneak peak (below).

But first, some important timeline info: 

We plan to close on Sunday (May 7th) and start to pack books, with the Book Brigade happening Tuesday evening through Wednesday evening. (Many thanks to those of you who have generously volunteered your time to help us!)  Our hope is to re-open in the new shop on Monday, May 15th.  We plan to have very little down time for the computers, so you can still order online those couple of days, and I will still be placing orders (maybe in my sleep, but I'll be doing it!), so please don't think you need to look elsewhere...This week it'll be business as usual, but all special orders must be pre-paid.  That way you can probably pop in to pick up your order, even if we don't have the register functioning.

Our first big author event of the summer season will be Thursday, May 18th at 6:30pm - Renee Rosen will be christening our new shop!  

I'd like to ask those of you who can attend Renee's event to get your $5 tickets as soon as possible, please.  Usually we are talking about and selling tickets at the counter right up until the day of the event, but in this case we will be closed until almost the day of, so I'm hoping to know we will have a full house before we close.  Tickets are available in-store, over the phone (989)732-8899, or on our website, www.SaturnBooksellers.com

Event info and pictures below.

Thanks for being Saturn customers for these many years!  We had a fantastic 25th Anniversary celebration; we got to read with Skippyjon Jones to the North Ohio and South Maple kids, had a big party and Indie Bookstore Day celebration, had drawings for $25 gift certificates and gave away every 25th book we rang for two weeks.  It was a blast.  I hope you got to be a part of it.
And I really hope you get to be a part of this new chapter in our lives - we can't wait to see you in our new space!

happy reading,
Coming in May to the NEW Saturn Booksellers' Location

In the second installment of Steve's new thriller series, our protagonist Nick Mason is desperate to escape his life as an assassin. But it's hard to walk away when he's controlled by crime boss Darius Cole, who arranged Nick's release from prison and now 'owns' him. So Mason embarks on his new mission - kill the men who could testify against Cole and keep him behind bars. All while trying to outsmart the assassin he replaced.

Kate Moore Discusses the
Non-Fiction Book of the Moment,
The Radium Girls  Thurs., May 25th, 6:30pm

The Radium Girls is the true story of women whose lives were torn apart by devastating health problems stemming from years of painting glowing radium onto watch dials. When they realized their employers knew about the harmful effects of the element all along, they pursued a class-action lawsuit—the first one with all women plaintiffs.

Get your tickets* now for this reading and Q&A event. The discussion should be fascinating!

*Tickets are $5 and redeemable as $5 toward any purchase the evening of the event.
