There’s a story here.
To say we’ve been open since 1968 isn’t enough. We have to give that time, dimension. Otherwise, we just come off sounding, well, old. We are seasoned and proud of it but our thinking has to be new. Hell, we’ve been through more hurricanes than Pat O’Brien’s on a Saturday, and we’re still here. Still standing.
Our strength comes from a center that the big box boys just don’t have. What is it? We have a story…
A story with a whole cast of characters. Millions are in the books we sell, but look more closely. You’ll find them in our aisles, behind the register and camped out in the café. You see, there’s no need to create some mystique when you’ve been around this long. It’s here.
Page and Palette. There’s a story here.

Author of the Month: Alexandra Fuller!
Alexandra Fuller’s debut book, Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood, was an award-winning memoir of her childhood in Africa. It was a New York Times Notable Book for 2002, the 2002 Booksense Best Non-fiction book, a finalist for the Guardian’s First Book Award and the winner of the 2002 Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize. Her second memoir, the New York Times Best Selling, Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness, is a prequel/sequel to Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight. Her memoir Leaving Before the Rains Come, is about her marriage and divorce. Her next book will be a memoir of her father titled Travel Light, Move Fast (August 6, 2019, Penguin Press). In 2004 she wrote Scribbling the Cat: Travels with an African Soldier which won the Ulysses Prize for Art of Reportage. In 2008, Fuller’s The Legend of Colton H Bryant told the story of a modern-day Wyoming cowboy working on that state’s oil rigs. She contributed the essay on Wyoming in the 2008 book State by State: A Panoramic Portrait of America. Fuller has written for The New Yorker, Vogue, and is a frequent contributor to National Geographic Magazine. Her first novel is Quiet Until the Thaw.
