The Joint Was Jumpin’

Congratulations to Linda Mitchell, a local artist and friend of the store, for winning Best in Show at the Redwood Art Association exhibition at the Morris Graves Museum of Art. Linda's winning painting is of Eureka Books' grand re-opening, held to celebrate our purchase of the store in 2007.
