Book Signing at The Gandy Dancer Mercantile


I'd never been to the Gandy Dancer Mercantile before, and had no idea what to expect at my book signing. The snowy weather had me dreading packing up my books. Then I stepped into this cozy shop, full of big, comfy chairs and couches—part used book store, part ice cream shop, part music venue. When I showed up, a big group was jamming up front and when I left, another group was setting up. While I was there, I got to talk with all kinds of creatives: musicians, poets, and painters.

It was the kind of place where people hung out for hours, where people all knew each other. In fiction, this store would either be the setting for a romcom or the place where the detective in a cozy mystery comes to get a pick-me-up right before solving the case. I really wasn't expecting such a warm welcome or to meet so many amazing people.

If you're ever in Ogden, stop in, browse the books, enjoy some icecream, and soak in the ambiance.
