Amazing Books, which succeeded Awesome Books as Downtown’s only independent bookseller, holds its official opening party tomorrow evening.
The celebration, hosted by the Pittsburgh Downtown Community Development Corp., includes refreshments and readings by local authors.
Amazing Books is owned and operated by Eric Ackland, who in March bought the stock of Awesome Books. Ackland, then a recent transplant to Pittsburgh, is a free-lance writer with a background in book sales. He changed the storefront's name and has been running the place since.
Announcements for the grand opening asked that attendees RSVP by Nov. 1 at 412-235-7263, but we’re guessing it’ll still be OK if you RSVP ASAP.
Amazing Books, featuring both new and used volumes, is located by 929 Liberty Ave.
